South Louisiana Mega Millions Ticket Worth $10,000 This Morning
A Mega Millions ticket sold in South Louisiana is a $10,000 winner this morning.

Tuesday night, May 31st the Mega Millions game held one of their two weekly prize drawings. The top prize for the night was an estimated $170 million dollars.
