What lies in store for the US Mega Millions lottery? Only fate knows the answer – the rest of us will have to wait with bated breath until Friday’s draw. Will there be another rollover or will a winner of the grand prize of $72 million present him- or herself? You could be that person, as Mega Millions tickets for tomorrow night’s, September 19th, draw are still available in large quantities!
What happened in the latest Mega Millions draw?
Tuesday night’s draw may not have created the latest mega-millionaire, but three ticket holders did win a whopping $1 million each! These lucky three matched the winning regular numbers 25, 45, 51, 53 and 73, which won each them the impressive second prize of $1 million. All that was missing for these winners was the Mega Ball – lucky number 2. But with that cool million dollars burning in their respective back-pockets, chances are they’re not losing any sleep over that.
One of the winners is from York, Pennsylvania and he’ll get to take home $1 million minus taxes. The other two are both from The Golden State, California. Because of California’s pari-mutuel system, each prize will work out to $972.147. In plain English, this means that the state doesn’t use fixed lottery prizes, but rather bases the final prize value on how many tickets were sold and how many tickets won. Either way, that’s a prize in a million!
None of these winners used the Megaplier feature, which, for a few dollars to activate, would have earned them an extra million dollars each! Next time you buy your Mega Millions ticket, think about that. It’s worth spending a few extra bucks to double, triple, quadruple or even quintuple your prize! Just imagine transforming that $1 million into $5 million by just checking the appropriate checkbox on your Mega Millions ticket! OK, you pay a bit more for your ticket, and since the Megaplier is a flexible number drawn in every draw, it’s not guaranteed to equal 5 in every draw, but still – at the very least you will double your prize!
The next best prize was won by two lucky players who matched 4 numbers plus the Mega Ball, each winning $5,000.
