The man who bought the multimillion-dollar winning ticket in Saturday’s Megabucks drawing has stepped forward.

Napolean Elvord hit all six numbers in the drawing. The $14.3 million-winning ticket was sold at the East Washington Mobil station on East Washington Avenue on the city’s East Side.

After taxes, Elvord takes home more than $6 million.
