Last night’s Mega Millions was a $15 million rollover, and while not quite at the stage of the $149 million Powerball this evening, it’s still a sizeable jackpot. The Mega Millions is always popular both with US players and around the world, but did anyone win last night’s jackpot?
The Mega Millions drawing went off without a hitch and if you have tickets then you’ll be keen to hear the winning numbers, which were 5 – 9 – 22 – 36 – 49; Mega Ball 36.
Players may have thought it was heading for another rollover, but one lucky player from New York matched all the winning numbers in last night’s drawing, scooping the entire Mega Millions $15 million jackpot.
Five players matched the five main balls in the draw, without the Mega Ball and they’ll each collect $250,000. Lucky Match five players came from New York, Connecticut, Oregon, and there were also two lucky match five players from Virginia. Another 22 players matched four main balls and the Mega Ball to pick up $10,000 each.
Congratulations to the lucky winner, and if you’re in New York and haven’t yet checked the lottery results, grab your tickets and do so now. The next Mega Millions draw is on Friday night and the jackpot will be back to $12 million.
However, as mentioned above, the big draw this evening is the Powerball draw, and after a string of rollovers, that jackpot is worth a massive $149 million.
