Illinois woman wins Mega Millions drawing bought in Wisconsin

A Buffalo Grove, Illinois woman is the lucky winner who won $1 million from the Friday, July 28 Mega Millions drawing.

The woman purchased her multi-draw ticket in early July from a BP Gas Station in Pleasant Prairie near the outlet mall. Multi draw tickets for Mega Millions can be purchased for eight draws in advance.

The winning ticket matched five out of five numbers, but not the Mega Ball. Friday's winning Mega Millions numbers were 4, 6, 31, 49, and 52 with a Mega Ball of 11. The Megaplier number was 3.

The ticket was purchased during a time when Mega Millions tickets were not sold in Illinois due to budget issues.

The odds of winning the $1 million prize are 1 in 18,492,204.
