Mega Millions

Somebody in Lake Havasu City is about to be $108 million richer.

The Arizona Lottery says a multi-draw lottery ticket sold at the Desert Martini bar at 2120 McCulloch Blvd. in Lake Havasu City matched all six numbers in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing, winning $108 million or $75.2 million as a cash option. 

Friday's winning numbers were 09, 14, 26, 29, 66, and 22, with a megaplier of 3x.

The winner hasn't yet come forward, according to Lottery officials. They have 180 days to redeem the winning tickets. Tickets must be signed on the back, and the Arizona Lottery recommends that winners talk with a financial advisor before claiming their prize. 

According to the Arizona Lottery, the $108 million winning ticket may be paid in 30 payments over 29 years if taken as an annuity or a lump-sum cash payment of $75.2 million. Both prize amounts are calculated before taxes. Desert Martini owners will also receive a $50,000 bonus from the Arizona Lottery for selling the winning ticket.

The Arizona Lottery last reported a winner in Lake Havasu City in April, when a $575,000 Fantasy 5 Jackpot was sold at Albertsons.
