$2,000,000 Mega Millions® Ticket Sold at Wheels in Fairfield for Aug. 24 Drawing

Someone purchased a $2,000,000 winning Mega Millions® ticket at the Wheels Convenience Store at 2047 Post Road in Fairfield for the Friday, August 24, 2018 drawing. Is it yours?

The winning numbers drawn on August 24 were 1 - 6 - 13 - 18 - 49, Mega Ball 8 and Megaplier 2. Of the 7,027 winning tickets sold in Connecticut for that date, one matched all five white ball numbers. Since the player added the Megaplier for an extra $1, their $1,000,000 prize was multiplied to $2,000,000!

All draw game tickets expire 180 calendar days from the draw date. Players are encouraged to check their tickets carefully online at CTLOTTERY.ORG, by scanning in a lottery Ticket Checker, by using the official CT Lottery Mobile App, or at any lottery retailer location.
