BounPanh Lovan Claims Prize from Tuesday's Mega Millions® Drawing

Boun Panh Lovan and family

DES MOINES, Iowa - A West Liberty woman and her family were excited to claim a prize of $250,000 she won in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.

BounPanh Lovan, along with her husband, son, daughter and son-in-law visited the Iowa Lottery's headquarters in Des Moines so Lovan could claim her prize Friday. She purchased her winning ticket at Giri BP, 1006 N. Columbus St. in West Liberty.

The winning numbers in Tuesday's $93 million Mega Millions jackpot drawing were: 16-32-39-41-53 and Mega Ball 16. The Megaplier® number that night was 3.

Lovan came close to winning it all Saturday night, missing just the Mega Ball number to win a $250,000 prize. If Lovan had added the Megaplier to her ticket, she would have automatically won a $1 million prize.

There was no winner in Tuesday's drawing. The estimated jackpot for Friday's drawing is $105 million.

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