YUMA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An unnamed Yuma resident is $1 million richer with a second prize winning ticket in last week's Mega Millions lottery.

It was one of two second prize tickets sold across the country for the Feb. 25 draw, and third Mega Millions $1 million second prize winning ticket sold in the state since the game was redesigned in October.

The winner purchased the ticket  at a store in the 1400 block of E. 16th Street in Yuma. The numbers were 12 – 18 – 25 – 35 – 66, with Mega Ball 15.

Players can check their tickets at ArizonaLottery.com.

"We are thrilled that another Arizona player has won a $1 million Mega Millions second prize, especially after last week's exciting $1 million Powerball® win in Chandler," Karen Bach, director of budget, products, and communications for the Arizona Lottery stated in a news release. "We are excited that the number of new millionaires statewide is continuing to grow, and we look forward to presenting the check to the winner."

The Mega Millions game was redesigned Oct. 22, 2013, to have faster growing jackpots, a $1 million second prize, and better overall odds of winning any prize, the release said. The ticket price stayed at $1.

Those who are feeling lucky can purchase a ticket at any Arizona Lottery retailer for the next Mega Millions draw on Friday, Feb. 28.
