- Lottery marketing director Nikki Orcutt hopes publicity about the winner of a $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Belle will increase public awareness of the multi-state lottery game.
In the five days leading up to Tuesday's jackpot drawing, state retailers sold about $1.75 million Mega Millions tickets -- less than half the sales the Lottery would expect for a comparable Powerball jackpot.
Orcutt said clerks were calling the Lottery expressing concerns that many people were buying Powerball, not Mega Millions, tickets leading up to the jackpot drawing.
"We're hoping this million-dollar prize winner brings some attention to the Mega Millions game," she said.
- Orcutt announced that the drawing for the $1 million grand prize in the second-chance contest in the Monopoly Millionaire scratch-off game will be Jan. 9, with a qualifying drawing Jan. 2.
