Somewhere out there in Pennsylvania, someone has just been asked by a coworker or friend how their night was, and that person will have to act super cool like nothing out of the ordinary happened. But that person had the best night ever, because one lucky ticket holder in Pennsylvania won the $152 million (AUD$205 million) Mega Millions jackpot last night!
A Night Full of Mega Millions Winners
Three millionaires came out of last night’s Mega Millions draw after the winning numbers — 20, 30, 62, 65, 74 and Mega Ball 1 — were announced. Besides the super lucky winner in Pennsylvania, two tickets, sold in New York and Texas, matched the five main numbers for the second tier prize of $1 million. There were actually 1,810,203 winners in total: 1 jackpot winner, 2 $1 million winners, and 1,810,200 other secondary prize division winners! Mega Millions is a game for people who like to win! All of us already knew that, but a solid reconfirmation every now and then is more than welcome!
