St. Louis Man Wins $40,000 With Megaplier®
A decision to add the Megaplier® option to his Mega Millions ticket made a difference of $30,000 for one St. Louis man. Michael Morgan of St. Louis purchased a $10 Quick Pick Mega Millions ticket at Pershall Amoco, 3890 Pershall, in Ferguson. He matched four white-ball numbers and the Megaball® in the March 23 Mega Millions drawing. By adding the Megaplier® option, Morgan multiplied his $10,000 prize into $40,000.
The winning numbers for the March 23 drawing were: 3, 25, 28, 29, 40, and the Megaball® number was 13.
The Missouri Lottery began selling Mega Millions tickets on Jan. 31. Mega Millions
is a multi-lottery Numbers Game with jackpots that start at $12 million. For an extra dollar at the time of purchase, players can add the Megaplier® option and multiply any winnings other than the jackpot by the Megaplier® number.
