Winning Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million sold in Kaukauna
KAUKAUNA, Wis. - The winning ticket for that massive $1.2 billion Mega Millions jackpot from Friday’s drawing was sold in Illinois, but Wisconsin has a new millionaire courtesy of that same lottery drawing.
Someone purchased a $1 million Mega Millions ticket Friday, July 29, at Lighthouse Corner Mobil, 1005 Crooks Ave. The Kaukauna million dollar prize winner matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball: 13, 36, 45, 57, 67.
The store’s owner told Action 2 News the lottery reached out to them on Saturday to let them know a million-dollar ticket was sold there.
”We were excited a little bit, so yeah, it’s kind of a fame for the store too, you know,” owner Jessie Singh said.
Lottery officials asked the store to pull video from its security camera system from around the time the winning ticket was sold on Friday. Singh said he immediately recognized a familiar face in the video and hoped that man was the winner. “He’s a regular customer. He buys everything drinks, whatever but he plays lottery a lot too.”
Then Monday, the man returned to the store to share their exciting news.
