W.Va. retailer sells $1M Mega Millions ticket

CHARLESTON — Someone who bought a Mega Millions ticket in West Virginia is $1 million richer.

West Virginia Lottery director John Musgrave says a ticket sold by a retailer in Marion County for Tuesday’s drawing matched five numbers with the Megaplier option. That option increases the $250,000 prize to $1 million.

Musgrave says the ticket’s holder hasn’t come forward to claim the prize.

Two other players won $10,000 each by matching four numbers and the Mega Ball.

Georgia Lottery officials say the Mega Millions jackpot is now $500 million, the largest in U.S. lottery history.

Previously, the largest jackpot was $390 million. Two players in Georgia and New Jersey won it in March 2007.
