(WWJ) A lucky Michigan resident is holding a Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million. 

The winning ticket was sold in Genesee County, according to Michigan Lottery officials, at the Beacon and Bridge Market, located at 5015 E. Vienna Road in Clio.

The lucky player matched all five white balls drawn -- 7-36-58-60-62 -- in last Friday's drawing to win a $1 million prize.

As of Monday morning, the winner had not come forward to claim the big prize. 

He or she should contact the Michigan Lottery to schedule an appointment to collect the winnings at lottery headquarters in. It's important to note that tickets are only valid for one year from the drawing date.

Mega Millions drawings take place each Tuesday and Friday evening. Each Mega Millions play is only $2. For an additional $1 per play, players have the opportunity to add a "Megaplier" that can multiply non-jackpot prizes by up to five times. Mega Millions tickets are sold at 10,500 retailers around the state and online at

Remember, about 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers. In 2018, the Lottery provided more than $941.3 million for Michigan's public schools, its fourth record contribution in row.
