WARSAW, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) --- Someone who purchased a lottery ticket in Warsaw has won $1-million dollars in Tuesday night's Indiana Lottery drawing.

Read the full press release below from the Hoosier Lottery:

"Everybody who purchased a Mega Millions® with Megaplier ticket recently in Warsaw, Ind. should check their tickets carefully. Tuesday, December 6 was lucky for someone in the northeast Indiana town.

One Mega Millions ticket purchased from 66 Center at 2518 E Center Street in Warsaw is worth $1 million following last night's drawing. That ticket matched the first five numbers, but not the Megaball®. The holder of the ticket added the Megaplier for an extra dollar which increased the prize from $250,000 to $1 million!

The lucky winning numbers were: 7-21-29-35-49 MB: 39 . The Megaplier was: 4.

No ticket nationwide matched all six numbers, so Friday's jackpot is an estimated $100 million.

The Hoosier Lottery is committed to providing innovative and entertaining lottery games for the benefit of the citizens of Indiana. In fiscal year 2011, the Hoosier Lottery generated $188 million in net income which was used to significantly reduce the motor vehicle excise tax for all Hoosier drivers and also supported the pension funds for retired Indiana teachers, police and firefighters. Player prizes for the fiscal year totaled $495 million and $56 million was earned by Indiana retailers on the sale of Hoosier Lottery products.

Since its inception in 1989, the Hoosier Lottery has produced nearly $4 billion in net income for the citizens of Indiana, nearly $1 billion in commissions and bonuses for participating Indiana retailers, and has paid out more than $8.4 billion in player prizes.

The Hoosier Lottery reminds players to always play responsibly."
