Mega Millions ticket worth $79M sold in Troy

Posted: Updated:
TROY, Mich. (WJBK) -

Officials say a lottery ticket worth $79 million was sold last week at a convenience store in Troy.

The winning ticket for Friday's Mega Millions drawing was purchased at John's Market on East Square Lake Road, just east of Livernois. The winning numbers were 2-23-41-47-54 with Mega Ball 42.

"I was just kind of hoping that it was somebody that deserves it," said market owner Bill Shuewayhat, who will receive $30,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The winner has yet to officially come forward.

But a Sterling Heights man claiming to have the winning ticket approached FOX 2's Amy Andrews outside the store. He didn't want to go on camera, but showed Andrews a ticket with all six winning numbers.

The man says he was avoiding traffic on M-59 when he stopped at the store on July 4 to purchase one easy pick ticket.

He plans to head to Lansing to present the winning ticket.
