$250,000 Mega Millions® ticket purchased at Martinsville retailer
INDIANAPOLIS – A Mega Millions ticket purchased at a Martinsville retailer matched the first five numbers, but not the Megaball® number, in Friday night’s drawing and is worth $250,000.
The ticket was purchased at Murphy USA at 629 Birk Road in Martinsville.
The winning Mega Millions numbers Friday night were: 5-24-26-29-53 MB 36. The Megaplier® was 4. No one nationwide matched all six numbers in the drawing, so Tuesday’s jackpot is an estimated $33 million.
