JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — After a Jacksonville man won $3 million from a Mega Millions ticket several weeks back, representatives will be in the little town on Wednesday to present the Chevron with a bonus check for selling the winning ticket.

Officials will be handing over the $30,000 selling bonus check to Jacksonville Chevron at noon. On top of the bonus check, Oregon Lottery said that it will be handing out "a limited number of free promotional Scratch-it tickets."

Martin Oliverson of Jacksonville took home $3 million playing Mega Millions, hitting five numbers but missing the Megaball. He spent an extra dollar for the "Megaplier," increasing his initial $1 million win to $3 million.

"He is the second person to win $3 million playing Mega Millions this year," Oregon Lottery said in a statement. "Ann Mingis of Springfield also won $3 million in January, and at the time that was the largest Mega Millions prize in Oregon since the game came to the state in 2010."

Since 2001, the Lottery says that there have been five jackpot winners from Jacksonville. Lottery officials have taken to referring to the city as “Jackpot-ville.” It is also the location of the largest jackpot winner in Oregon history — a $340 million Powerball prize that was claimed by the Chaney and West families in October 2005.
