PHOENIX – An Arizona lottery player connected for a $1 million payout in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing, officials announced.

The seven-figure ticket was purchased at the Bashas’ supermarket at 105 Main St. in Bagdad, a rural community in Yavapai County about 120 miles northwest of Phoenix.

The entry matched all five white numbers drawn — 26, 28, 36, 63 and 66 – but missed the gold Mega Ball of 15.

What is the jackpot for next Mega Millions drawing?

The Arizona ticket was one of three nationally to win $1 million in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing. The jackpot went unclaimed and will be an estimated $331 million for the next drawing on Friday.

Mega Millions is a twice-weekly game of chance sanctioned in 45 states; Washington, D.C.; and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets, which cost $2 per entry, are available at more than 3,000 Arizona Lottery retailers across the state.

Drawings are held Tuesday and Friday nights.

The other major national lottery game, Powerball, had a $215 million jackpot winner on Monday. The top prize reset to $20 million.

Powerball drawings are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.
