DES MOINES, Iowa - A Denver man won a $40,000 prize in the May 15 Mega Millions drawing.

Frank Phillis claimed his prize Friday at the Iowa Lottery's regional office in Cedar Rapids. He purchased his winning ticket at Kwik Star, 341 State St. in Denver.

The winning numbers in the $25 million Mega Millions drawing on May 15 were 10-11-12-14-24 and Mega Ball 6. The Megaplier® number that night was 4. Phillis' ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Because he added the Megaplier option to his ticket, Phillis multiplied his $10,000 win by four to claim a $40,000 prize.

One ticket purchased in California took home the $25 million jackpot prize. Friday's estimated jackpot is $24 million.

Players can multiply their prizes (except the jackpot) with the Megaplier up to four times. The cost is $1 per play.
