We’re rapidly closing in on two weeks since someone won a $1 million prize with a Mega Millions® ticket in Des Moines, but we haven't heard a peep about who the big winner - or winners - may be!
If you've got a lotto ticket that you bought in Des Moines, get it out and double-check it. Maybe YOU'RE the big winner and you don't even know it yet!
We've put up the banner you see here at the customer-service counter at Dahl's, 4343 Merle Hay Road in Des Moines, as an eye-catching reminder that someone at the store hit it big.
The $1 million-winning ticket came close to winning at least a share of the $87 million Mega Millions jackpot in the drawing on Aug. 1, matching the first five numbers but missing the Mega Ball. The winning numbers that night were: 13-29-34-37-72 and Mega Ball 6. The Megaplier® number was 5.
Prizes of $1 million must be claimed at Iowa Lottery headquarters in Des Moines. If you've got the winning ticket and have questions, feel free to give us a call at the lottery at 515-725-7900, email us at email@example.com or reach out to us on social media. We'll be glad to help!
