What is the payout to the retailer that sold a "million dollar" winning ticket in the recent Holiday Millionaire Lottery?

Charlie Nead

Each retailer that sold a winning $1-million ticket - there were 10 in all - received a $5,000 bonus commission. In addition, all retailers received a $1 commission for each Holiday Millionaire Lottery ticket they sold.
