A Mega Millions ticket sold at the Scarlet Pearl Casino and Resort in D’Iberville is worth $1 million, after the player matched all five numbers in the Tuesday night drawing. The player was only one number away from winning the estimated $257 million jackpot, by missing the Mega Ball number of 5.

The Tuesday winning numbers were 10-18-27-37-61, with a Mega Ball of 5, and Megaplier of 3. If the player had spent an additional $1 on the Megaplier option, he or she would have tripled the prize to $3 million.

Selling a winning ticket worth $1 million or more qualifies the Scarlet Pearl Casino and Resort to receive $5,000 selling bonus from the Mississippi Lottery.
