Check Your Tickets! $1 Million Capital Region Mega Millions Winner!
Even though there was no grand prize winner in last night's Mega Millions drawing, someone in the Capital Region is waking up a little bit richer this morning. There were two second-place tickets sold in New York state and one in the Capital Region.
Where Was The Winning Ticket Sold?
The winning ticket was sold at a Stewart's Shop in Rensselaer County. There are over three hundred Stewart's Shops in the Capital Region and this one is in Troy. It's the Stewart's Shop at 8 Vandenburgh Ave in Troy on the corner of Campbell Ave.
This Stewart's Shop isn't far from Hudson Valley Community College. It is actually down the street from where I used to live off of Campbell Ave in Troy. This was the Stewart's where I used to buy my lottery tickets.
There Was No Jackpot Winner as the Pot Grows
There was no top prize winner in the Mega Millions drawing so now the jackpot is $1.1 billion dollars. No one matched the five numbers and the mega ball number. But the Capital Region winner in Troy matched five of the numbers without the mega ball.
Wonder Who is The Local Winner
We may never know who won the one million dollars in the Mega Millions. They technically have to come forward but there is a way for them to remain anonymous.
The Mega Millions numbers were 3-20-46-59-63 and the mega ball was 13. There was no jackpot winner so now the top prize will be $1.1 billion on Tuesday night.
