Winning Mega Millions ticket sold at Woodland Hills gas station
LOS ANGELES - A ticket with all six numbers in Friday evening's multi-state Mega Millions draw was sold at a gas station in Woodland Hills and the ticket holder will have the choice between receiving the $421 million jackpot in 30 graduated payments over 29 years or a lump sum payment of $289.5 million.
The numbers drawn Friday were 3, 16, 25, 44, 55 and the Mega number was 13. The drawing was the 28th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron station located at 6061 Topanga Canyon Blvd.
One ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Ohio and is worth $3 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, where for an additional $1 any non-jackpot prize will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.
One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, were sold in Mississippi, New York and Texas. They are each worth $1 million, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game.
