FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOISE, Idaho – One lucky Idaho Lottery player could be missing out on the Christmas gift of a lifetime this holiday season. Over a month has passed since the Idaho Lottery confirmed there was a $1,000,000 winning ticket sold on the popular game Mega Millions. The winning numbers for the Tuesday, November 15, 2022 Mega Millions draw were 6, 19, 28, 46, 61, and the MegaBall was 18. The Idaho Lottery has also confirmed the winning ticket was sold at a retail location in Ada County. No winner has come forward or contacted the Idaho Lottery.
"Idaho continues to be a lucky place for players to win big prizes," said Jeff Anderson, Idaho Lottery Director. "We are encouraging everyone who played Mega Millions in mid-November to check their tickets carefully for winners. Too often we see players not match the MegaBall and think they do not have a winning ticket. In this case, the ticket matched all five of the first numbers and is worth $1 million."
The Idaho Lottery encourages everyone to sign their winning tickets before presenting them for payment. November’s winner has until close of business on May 12, 2023 to claim their prize from Idaho Lottery headquarters in Boise.
The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday night (and the Christmas draw) is now an estimated $510 million.
During this gift giving season, the Idaho Lottery would like to remind everyone to gift Lottery tickets responsibly. You must be 18 years old to buy, sell, or redeem Lottery products in Idaho.
