Winning ticket worth $149 million

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. — Someone who bought a multi-state Mega Millions lottery ticket in Pennsylvania is millions of dollars richer.

The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold its first jackpot-winning Mega Million ticket, a $149 million prize from the Tuesday, May 20 drawing.

The winning ticket was sold at White Oak Gas & Grocery on the 1100 block of Fawcett Avenue, McKeesport, Allegheny County.

The winning ticket matched all five white balls, 10, 40, 63, 64, and 69, and the Mega Ball, 7.

The ticket has an annuity value of $149 million or a cash value of $86.1 million.

The retailer will receive $100,000 for selling the jackpot-winning ticket.

The prize must be claimed and the ticket validated before Lottery officials can identify the winner. Pennsylvania Lottery Mega Millions winners have one year from the drawing date to claim prizes.

                Bring the old matrix back.  This new system ain't working.  No higher payouts and taking too long for nothing.  I ain't playing MM for a few months now.

                Understand...  People are more complicated than the masks they wear in society... Everyone is playing to win, and some people will use moral justifications to advance their side.

                      I just looked at the MM page, and it is the 1st.  However they have won power ball more then a couple times.

                            Pennsylvania is a big state and know it has lots of players. It's surprising to read that PA has finally had its first MM winner. 

                            Congrats to the winner in McKeesport in Allegheny County, PACoffee
