WINNESHIEK, Iowa — An Ossian resident won 1 million dollars Friday after purchasing a Mega Millions ticket.
The lucky ticket was purchased at a Casey’s gas station in the 200 block of West Main Street in Ossian, a town of about 800 people.
According to the IA Lottery, the ticket came within one number of winning a share of the 99 million dollar jackpot. It was also the only ticket nationwide to win 1 million dollars in Friday’s drawing.
Friday’s winning numbers were 12-18-24-46-65, Mega Ball 3, and Megaplier 4. No one matched all six numbers, so the big prize climbed to an estimated 116 million dollar annuity or 65.6 million dollar lump-sum option for Tuesday’s drawing.
This is the fourth Iowa ticket to win at least 1 million dollars this year.
