“I Knew I’d Be the First to Win!” Says $2 Million Mega Millions Ticket Winner

$2 Million Mega Millions Winner Claims Prize

JACKSON, MISS. – A Gautier woman walked away from the Mississippi Lottery Headquarters as a $2 million winner today from the June 9, 2020, Mega Millions drawing. The player chose to remain anonymous.

“I picked my own numbers, and I always play Megaplier,” she said. “When we heard the Mississippi Lottery was coming to Mississippi, I said I’d be the first to win!”

How did she win?!?! She correctly picked the 5 white ball numbers and paid the extra dollar for Megaplier. The Megaplier number for the June 9 drawing was 2, multiplying her otherwise $1 million prize to $2 million.

She purchased her winning ticket from Jerry Lee’s Grocery in Gautier, Miss., where she regularly stops once a week to purchase her tickets.
