TROY, OH – Patricia Edwards, 54, of Troy had a happy holiday after claiming a $1-million prize from the Dec. 17 Mega Millions drawing. She matched all five numbers, but not the Mega Ball -- one number shy of matching all numbers needed for the jackpot prize in that evening’s near record $648 million jackpot drawing. Her $1-million, second-tier prize was one of 11 sold for that drawing; and the only one in Ohio.
She made her claim Dec. 23.
The winning numbers for that drawing were 8-14-17-20-39, Mega Ball: 7.
Ms. Edwards purchased her winning ticket at the Speedway located at 1894 West Main Street in Troy. Speedway receives a $1,000 sales bonus.
