Mega Millions winner comes forward

Michigan Lottery officials waited for most of February for a jackpot winner whose ticket came from the Copper Country to come forward.

But now the winner has claimed the $19 million prize.

Festival Foods on M-26 in Houghton sold the winning ticket for the February 5th Mega Millions drawing.

Lottery officials say they’ll hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon in Lansing to introduce the lucky winner.
