During the Jan. 10 drawing for the Mega Millions, which had a jackpot of $1.1 million, one Connecticut resident won a prize of $3 million.
The ticket, which was purchased at Cumberland Farms on Hartford Street in Granby, had correctly guessed the five winning numbers and also opted in for the "Megaplier" option. If the Megaball was also correctly guessed, the Connecticut ticket would have claimed the jackpot. The ticket is currently listed as "unclaimed" by the Connecticut Lottery. Another Connecticut resident, who also correctly guessed the five numbers but did not have a "Megaplier," won a $1 million prize in the drawing. In total, 72,809 winning tickets were sold in Connecticut for the Jan. 10 drawing, with prizes ranging from $2 to $3 million, according to the Connecticut Lottery.
