A Mega Millions ticket sold in Lake Havasu City has won the $108 million jackpot, according to Arizona Lottery officials.

Officials say the winning ticket was sold at the Desert Martini store on Wednesday and it matched all six numbers in Friday night’s drawing.

Executive Director Gregg Edgar says it’s only the second time Arizona has had a Mega Millions jackpot winner.

Lottery officials say the winner can be paid in 30 payments over 29 years as an annuity, or can take a lump-sum cash payment of $75 million.

The retailer who sold the ticket will also get a $50,000 bonus from the Arizona Lottery.
