Mega Millions lottery jackpot increases to $94 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot increases to $94 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery game grew to $94 million Saturday.

None of the tickets sold for Friday night's $80 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball number. The next drawing will be Tuesday night.

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

The California winners will receive $109,176 each because California does not award the fixed prize amounts that the other Mega Millions states use. 

Also, 34 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000, except those sold in California, which are worth $9,925.

The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 6, 36, 39, 45, and 52. The Mega Ball number was 45.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.

I hope MM continues to roll. Congratulations to 2nd prize winners outside of CA. With 45 becoming the winning number of both WB and MB, Mega Millions has only 9 numbers left in terms of not having the winning numbers of both WB and MB. They are 2, 7, 9, 28, 33, 37, 38, 39, and 46.

      I am hoping to get at least 3 out of 6 on the next draw. Goergia does'nt seem to be that lucky though. You hardly find winners of a big jackpot in Georgia. I think Georgia needs to upgrade their machines. Just my opinion.

        If you pick your own numbers, the machines don't effect whether your tickets win or not, beside if you buy QPs, they are random  and random doesn't change with upgrades.  Good luck to you.

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

            Shay, we did have a couple of decent Jackpots here in GA over the last couple of years....

            One in Washington, Ga I recall for >$100 Mil and one in Fitzgerald for over $300 Mil  when the MM was known as the Big Game.

             But I agree, we need to have us some more winners !!!

            Go buy your tickets at that lucky store in Americus-- Wayne's World, I believe it is... They have sold 2 or 3 Jackpots....

                  Lloyd .. your more them welcome to be in my pool if ya would like ...I give each player an agreement .  Depending on how you payed to be in ( weekly , Bi- Weekly or Monthly) I would adjust yours accordingly. There are 6 in our pool .. I also play a additional PICKED numbers outside the pool and in the pool we play auto lotto and I give everyone and agreement each draw and a copy of the tickets and each agreement has all players in the pool on it so when we hit there is plenty of proof of your enrollment to the poo; :) ...  Let me know if ya want me to get them for ya and how ya want to play in the pool or alone......Other wise you can play like on Bet slips but pay alot more for the ticket costs and fees PLUS lose a certain percentage:(

                   Lets  Get The Big One!!!!!!

                      Thankyou for offering Sassy. I play alone. Never liked the idea of pools.

                      Have a Nice Day.
