COTTAGE GROVE, Ore — If you bought a Mega Millions ticket in Cottage Grove in November, you may have won $3 million.
The winning Mega Millions numbers for the Nov. 30 drawing were 25-28-40-43-63 and the Mega Ball was 19.
The winning ticket matched five numbers but the not Mega Ball number, which is a $1 million prize. The person added the Megaplier option for an extra dollar, which increases non-jackpot prizes. In the case of the Nov. 30 drawing, the Megaplier was 3, meaning the person’s winnings were multiplied by three.
Oregon Lottery officials said the ticket was purchased on Nov. 18.
“If you purchased a ticket with multiple draws, and you purchased it in Cottage Grove, 2018 may be ending with some excitement,” said Patrick Johnson, public information specialist with Oregon Lottery.
The winner has one year from the winning draw date to claim the prize. In this case, the ticket would need to be claimed before Dec. 2, 2019, since Nov. 30, 2019 is a Saturday.
