A Manassas man won $1 million subsequent to purchasing a Mega Millions ticket from a Harris Teeter
but sadly he was just a single number away from winning the $131 million bonanza.
Malcom Meredith purchased a Mega Millions ticket from the Harris Teeter at 10060 Market Circle in Manassas
Meredith carried his pass to the Virginia Lottery's Northern Virginia Customer Service Center in Woodbridge and figured out his ticket was the $1 million champ.
The main number on Meredith's card that didn't match the drawing was the last "Uber Ball" number, which would have gotten him around $131 million
As per Virginia Lottery, the chances of having each of the six winning numbers are 1 of every 302,575,350. The chances of winning the $1 million are 1 out of 12,607,306.
