In the Tues., Jan. 20, Mega Millions drawing, Richard York, a very lucky WyoLotto player found out that it pays to buy the Megaplier, turning their initial $5,000 winnings into what currently is the largest winning ticket in Wyoming Lottery history of $25,000. The winner bought the $1 Mega Millions ticket and paid the extra $1 for a Megaplier which came up to be five in Tuesday’s drawing, increasing their total winnings to $25,000.
