Christmas Day Delivers a $3 Million Winning Mega Millions® Prize to Connecticut Ticket HolderCT Lottery officials announced today that a winning Mega Millions ticket worth $3 million was sold Christmas morning at Avenue News at 821 Farmington Ave, Bristol for the December 25, 2018 drawing.

The winning numbers drawn on December 25 were 2 - 8 - 42 - 43 - 50. The Mega Ball was 6, and the Megaplier was 3.

The winning ticket holder matched the first "white" ball numbers drawn, but missed the Mega Ball number. Because the ticket was purchased with the Megaplier® feature added, the $1 million prize was automatically multiplied by three for $3 million.

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.
