Someone in Nebraska is one million dollars richer. During Friday, January 10th's Mega Mega Millions® drawing, a $1 million winning ticket was sold in Nebraska. The winning ticket was purchased at No Frills Supermarket at 13215 West Center Road in Omaha.
The winning Mega Millions numbers for the Jan. 10 drawing were: white ball numbers 8, 28, 36, 37, 57; Mega Ball® number 8. The winning ticket sold in Omaha matched all five of the winning white ball numbers for the $1 million prize. This is the second $1 million Mega Millions prize won in Nebraska since the game was modified in October 2013.
