MCKEESPORT (KDKA) – Someone in Allegheny County woke up Wednesday $149 million richer.
The Pennsylvania Lottery says a winning Mega Millions ticket worth $149 million was sold in McKeesport.
The winning ticket was sold at White Oak Gas & Grocery on Fawcett Avenue.
“Our phones have not stopped, my cell phone hasn’t stopped,” said Michelle Blackwell, a clerk at the store, said. “It’s been crazy since we found out.”
This is the Pennsylvania Lottery’s first jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket since joining the multi-state game in 2010.
The Pennsylvania Lottery has sold 17 jackpot-winning Powerball tickets since joining that multi-state game in 2002.
The Mega Millions jackpot had been rolling since the last jackpot was won in California on April 4.
The owner of the White Oak Gas & Grocery will get a $100,000 as a bonus from the Lottery Commission.
The winning numbers were 10-40-63-64-69, and the Megaball 07.
