Debra Tillman of Belle Fourche has claimed last Friday's $40,000 Mega Millions prize.
Tillman matched four of five white ball numbers and the Mega Ball in the November 9 drawing to win the game's $10,000 third-level prize. Because she purchased the Megaplier option for an additional dollar and the Megaplier was 4, her prize was quadrupled to $40,000.
The winning ticket was purchased at Fresh Start in Belle Fourche. Tillman used numbers that she has been using since the Mega Millions game began.
The Mega Millions jackpot currently is $19 million for Tuesday's drawing (November 13, 2012). Mega Millions is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
