Friday 2nd January 2015 Drawing
The last drawing on Friday, January 2nd 2015, yielded the following winning numbers: 13-15-35-62-74 and Mega Ball number 12. There was a x4 Megaplier in the draw which was great news for secondary prize winners. Five balls are selected from a pool of number between 1 and 75, while the Mega Ball is drawn from a set of numbers between 1 and 15. To win the Mega Millions lottery, you need to match all six numbers. But, there are incredible prizes for players that only match several of the winning numbers too. For example, in Friday’s drawing there were two winners matching all 5 white balls with a prize payout of $4 million. Thanks to the x4 Megaplier, the standard $1 million payday was boosted by a multiple of 4. Plus there were 36 x $5,000 winners with 5 Megaplier winners with a Megaplier prize amount of $20,000 apiece. It pays to go big with the Mega Millions as players already know. This fantastic lottery game is reeling in the crowds as Australians continue to celebrate the New Year and all the riches it’s bound to bring in!
