A resident of Fort Worth recently won millions of dollars in a Mega Millions drawing.

The lucky winner won $3 million after claiming a second-tier Mega Millions prize for the drawing that was held on August 30. The Fort Worth resident opted to stay anonymous and purchased the ticket at Terry’s Food, located at 5221 Camp Bowie Boulevard in Fort Worth, Texas.

For a person to claim a Mega Millions prize, their lottery ticket has to match all 5 of the numbers drawn, including the Mega Ball number. Ticket-holders are given a second-tier award if their tickets match all five white balls but not the Mega Ball. The numbers drawn, 2-38-55-57-65, were in the winning ticket claimed by the Fort Worth resident, but the ticket did not match the Mega Ball number, 17.

The last Mega Millions jackpot was won on July 29, with the winner, a resident of Illinois, claiming an estimated $1.337 billion, equivalent to $780.5 million in cash.

Drawings for the Mega Millions lottery are held every Tuesday and Friday.

As previously reported by The Dallas Express, two North Texas residents recently won millions in other lottery drawings, including a scratch-off ticket.
