Happy holidays for Megabucks ticket holder
Longtime player claims $3 million winning ticket
Vermont Lottery officials announced today that the owner of the $3 million Tri-State Megabucks jackpot ticket sold at Main Street Grocery in North Troy has come forward. Wishing to remain anonymous, the longtime Megabucks player stated that the win is “life changing.’ The lone winning ticket matched five out of five numbers plus the Megaball in the December 19, 2015 drawing. The winning numbers for the estimated annuitized jackpot of $3,000,000 were 15-18-22-31-38 and 03 for the Megaball.
Store personnel were elated and in disbelief when they had found out the winning ticket was purchased at their location. “You’re kidding.” exclaimed Angie who had opened the store Sunday morning. “That’s unbelievable; it’s really going to make somebody’s holiday.”
Main Street Grocery has been in business for 8 years and, as a Vermont Lottery agent, will receive an extra bonus for selling the winning ticket.
This is Vermont’s first Megabucks jackpot win since a Megabucks subscription holder won $3.45M in May. The jackpot for Wednesday’s December 23, 2015 Megabucks drawing is estimated at $1 million.
