Mega Millions lottery jackpot leaps to $189 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot leaps to $189 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery game grew to $189 million Saturday.

None of the tickets sold for Friday night's $162 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Tuesday.

There were 12 second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 4 from California, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Michigan, 1 from New Jersey, 2 from New York, 1 from Ohio, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Virginia.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.

The California second-prize winners will receive $88,689 each because California does not award the fixed prize amounts used by the other Mega Millions states. 

Also, 54 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000, with the exception of the California tickets, which are worth $9,675 each.

The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 1, 18, 31, 46 and 52. The Mega Ball number was 37.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.

        If I was going to play on line, I would test the waters before it got that high so I would feel comfortable about buying a $250M ticket that way.  Before the BigGame came to Ohio as MegaMillions I sent my brother in Virgina $100 to hold to buy tickets at a later date when I called him.  When the jackpot got up to $80M, I call him and gave him twenty lines to play and told him to play 10 lines for himself out of the money I sent earlier and he told me he had spent it and didn't feel right about gambling.  After that I used the service at LP had at the time to buy tickets for myself or drove to Michigan to buy tickets for myself and co-workers.

          Buying tickets using friends and relatives is the least reliable way of getting tickets. I use primeticket service if Euromillions or the UK lottery gets big I just wish they would cover the Canadian 6/49 and pick 7.  Personally I doubt this run will roll past the 300 mark.

            Back in the days when I drove to Michigan for BigGame and Indiana for PowerBall tickets, the lines would be at least 50 people deep for a $100M jackpot, that doesn't happen any more.  People are either buying their tickets earlier or on line.  I hardly ever run into a line more than 4 people deep and it's usually because the clerk is not available.

                    I see jeaps changed to leaps.  I was going to add it to my dictionary as leap and jump combined.

                      I have no interest in "Win for Life," but the promotion in Georgia right now gets you a free WfL ticket if you have a least $2 of MM tickets on one slip.
