TAYLOR (WWJ) – If you’ve recently purchased a Mega Millions lottery ticket from a liquor store Downriver — you could be $1 million richer.
Michigan Lottery officials say one ticket sold at Mac’s Liquor Store at Northline and Pardee roads in Taylor matched five numbers in Friday night’s drawing — just one short of hitting the jackpot.
The winning numbers were 24-37-42-50-65, Mega Ball 14.
If you have the golden ticket, contact the Michigan Lottery Public Relations Division at 517-373-1237 to schedule an appointment to collect your winnings from the lottery’s headquarters in Lansing.
Sixteen other tickets sold in Michigan are worth $500, for matching four white balls, and another 61 are good for $50, for matching three white balls plus the Mega Ball.
The next Mega Millions drawing is on Tuesday. As it stands now, the jackpot is an estimated $49 million — with a $32 million cash option.
