AUSTIN, Texas — One Austin resident is officially $5 million richer after purchasing a Mega Millions ticket.
The winning ticket was sold at the H-E-B on 5800 W Slaughter Lane on May 21, Texas Lottery said. The person who bought the ticket claimed the prize on June 5, according to a press release.
The original prize was set at $1 million but the ticket was purchased with the Megaplier feature, which increased the jackpot by five. All five white numbers were drawn, but no Mega Ball number was drawn.
