Former Coal Miner Wins Mega Millions Prize

Virginia Lottery officials are still waiting for a US Mega Millions winner to claim his prize.

The ticket was purchased from C&L Super Serve in Logan County, West Virginia, and won $1 million in the Friday night draw. Store owner Larry Trogdon said the winner, an out of work coal miner, returned to the store and checked his ticket on Saturday morning.

The win will not be official until the winner presents his ticket at the lottery's headquarters in Charleston.

Mega Millions is the biggest jackpot game in America. Jackpots start at $15 million and other prizes range from $1 to $1 million. The next draw is on Tuesday at 23:00 (EST) and has an estimated jackpot of $122 million.
