Mega Millions lottery jackpot increased to $147 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot increased to $147 million

The multi-state Mega Millions lottery jackpot is growing to $147 million for Friday's game after there was no big winner in Tuesday night's $128 million drawing.

No tickets matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.

There were six second-prize tickets: 1 from Georgia, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from New Jersey, 1 from New York, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Virginia.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball to win $250,000.

50 tickets matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball, and for a $10,000 prize.

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 7, 12, 18, 31 and 55. The Mega Ball was 30.

The Texas Megaplier was 4.

I hope that MM goes on a record jackpot run. Congratulations to the people who won $250K on matching 5 numbers, but missed the Mega Ball.

    I'd like to see a jackpot run too but would settle for a jackpot of any amount. Thumbs Up

     I'd even be happy for 2nd prize!

          Wouldn't it be nice to add a

          SUPER LOTTO USA

          and have it available to:

          1. All current states that have lotteries
          2. Then add all the states in the USA that do not have a lottery.

          PURPOSE:

          • To provide national disaster relief funds for the people of the USA.  According to the weather experts, we can expect to have a series of devasting hurricanes (2-3) per season due to some phenomenon.  Nevertheless, we are having them.  Like most lotteries benefit education, this lottery would be a fund ear marked for natural disasters only; Floods, hurricanes, devastating tornadoes, an event like 911 (pray that never happens again!) etc.
          • The SUPER LOTTO USA would be played ONCE per week:

                    ___have a minimum jackpot of $25,000,000.00

                    ___Rollover of a minimum of $ 10,000,000.00 each week no winner

                            is drawn

                    ___With five consecutives rollovers with no jackpot winner(s),

                            double the jackpot for the next drawing.

                    ___ tickets cost $1.00

                    ___Offer a community lotto ticket that would include an option to play all lotto tickets in your state, plus the SUPER USA LOTTO for a certain price and get a free random ticket from one of the group and be able to choose your own numbers unlike the current Florida Lottery "Grouper"  Grouper is a $5.00 ticket where all the lotto games are played and you get a randon free ticket for one of the lotteries.  Only drawback for me is that I can not choose my own numbers.

                    ___Advance Play Options

                    ___Annuity or Lump SUm Option

                    ___Double the jackpot (option at purchase for $100.00 per play).  [The PowerBall has an option on the second prize level for multiplying the "power play" number drawn]

                      ___Include an option to double the prize money at all levels (except jackpot---see above) @ $2.00 per play.

          AND another feature would be the winning of a dream home in each state, complete with two cars, and the dog.  Maybe this would be SUPER Lotto USA scratch off tickets @ $1.00 per ticket.  Other prizes would be:

          • a car
          • computer
          • various appliances
          • college scholarships 
          • family vacation

          Each state participating would have a batch containing one dream home package,  two one week family vacations, ten cars, 20 college scholarships, 200 computers, 50 laptops, 5,000 various appliances, and cash prizes with each state having one top cash prize of $250, 000.00, five $50,000.00, five $1,000.00, twenty $500.00, one hundred $100.00, two hundred $50.00, three hundred $20.00, five thousand $5.00,  ten thousand one free tickets.

          Or, to keep it simple, just add a "Prize" column on the play slip!

          Now this would be SUPER.  I also hope that a needy disaster victim gets the next big jackpotPatriot

            I don't know if people want to win merchandise on a LOTTERY ticket. That's what raffles are for.

                Winner2b,

                I play my lottos either through friends or purchase them online from London. We are not allowed by the goverment to use our credit cards for this purpose or some crap like that anyway. I gamble online for the Indian lottos here but manage to play the us , the uk and the euromillions through London.

                I've requested our online company to atleast have some method of purchasing these tkts here but so far its PTS zindabad ( thats indian for "long live") !!!

                          Chewie, its really sad with the latest bombings...only the main Hindu areas were targeted and not  the other eligious areas. This is our biggest and most joyous festival..it is the equivalent of Christmas in the western world...the government can't or won't do a thing...they can say what they like to the media but we all know wo is behind these senseless killings...with gods grace all my kith and kin and friends are okay!

                          Thanks for asking...I appreciate your concern for us over here.....
