MADISON (AP) — Someone who bought a Mega Millions ticket on Milwaukee’s south side will be having a very merry Christmas.

The Wisconsin lottery says the ticket is a $1 million winner. The ticket, sold at a Pick N’ Save store, matched five regular winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball.

The Mega Millions numbers were: 01, 06, 07, 18, and 29, with a Mega Ball of 16.

Normally the ticket would be worth $250,000, but the lucky player also bought the multiplier feature which boosted the prize to $1 million.

The winner has 180 days to claim the prize.
