Fort Worth resident claims $2 million Texas Lottery Mega Millions winning ticket

·1 min read

For the second consecutive day, a Tarrant County resident has claimed a massive winner in the Texas Lottery.

A Fort Worth resident claimed a $2 million winner for the Mega Millions prize drawing on Sept. 3.

The winning ticket was purchased at Albertsons at 7400 Oakmont Blvd. in Fort Worth. The winner elected to remain anonymous.

The winning Quick Pick tickets with Megaplier matched all five of the white ball numbers drawn (7-10-12-61-65) on Sept. 3, but not the Mega Ball number (3). The Megaplier number was 2.

Mega Millions is played by choosing five numbers from a field of 70 and one Mega Ball number from the second field of 25 numbers. To win the Mega Millions jackpot, players must match all six numbers drawn including the Mega Ball, according to the Texas Lottery rules. Players matching fewer numbers may not win the jackpot, but still win prizes. Mega Millions offers a $20 million starting jackpot and a second-tier (Match 5+0) prize of $1 million. By choosing the Megaplier for $1 more per play, players can multiply their non-jackpot winnings by two, three, four or five times, winning as much as $5 million.

Mega Millions drawings are broadcast each Tuesday and Friday at 10:12 p.m.
