UPDATE: $2 Million Mega Millions ticket purchased at Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier, Mississippi
UPDATE: Mississippi Lottery tells WXXV that the $2 million winning lottery ticket was sold at Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier on Highway 90. The winner claimed the prize today in Jackson and chose to remain anonymous.
JACKSON, MISS–A Gautier woman walked away from the Mississippi Lottery Headquarters as a $2 million winner today from the June 9, 2020, Mega Millions drawing. The player chose to remain anonymous.
“I picked my own numbers, and I always play Megaplier,” she said. “When we heard the Mississippi Lottery was coming to Mississippi, I said I’d be the first to win!”
How did she win?!?! She correctly picked the 5 white ball numbers and paid the extra dollar for Megaplier. The Megaplier number for the June 9 drawing was 2, multiplying her otherwise $1 million prize to $2 million.
She purchased her winning ticket from Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier, Miss., where she regularly stops once a week to purchase her tickets.
