Winning ticket for $64M Mega Millions lottery jackpot sold in N.Y.

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Winning ticket for $64M Mega Millions lottery jackpot sold in N.Y.

One ticket matched all six winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing to win the estimated $64 million jackpot, according to lottery officials.

The sump-sum cash value of the jackpot was $41.8 Million.

The winning ticket was purchased in Kings County, New York. The winning numbers were 5, 14, 17, 19 and 24 and the Mega Ball number was 25.  The Megaplier was 4.

In addition to the lucky jackpot winner, 16 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers but not the Mega Ball for a $250,000 second-prize: 1 from Arkansas, 4 from California, 1 from Connecticut, 1 from Kansas, 1 from New Jersey, 3 from New York, 2 from North Carolina, 2 from Ohio, and 1 from Texas.

The California second-prize winners will each receive $58,360 instead of the $250,000 second-prize winners in other states will receive.  That's because California awards all lottery prizes using a pari-mutuel method that calculates the prize amount based on the amount wagered combined with the number of winners.

A listing of California pari-mutuel prize amounts for all prize levels, for this drawing and all previous Mega Millions drawings, is available at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).

The multi-state Mega Millions lottery numbers are drawn every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m.  Mega Millions is available to play in 41 states plus the District of Columbia.

In other multi-state lottery news, the jackpot for tonight's Powerball drawing is $190 million.

Powerball is available in 42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.  Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m.  The winning numbers are published at USA Mega.

I said it before and I'll say it again, I don't care if California 2nd place winners occasionally get more money than everybody else - that pari-mutuel system sucks. Now 4 winners in CA are getting $58,000 instead of $250,000 or a million if they had the Megaplier. That bites - bigtime.

Hey Rosie! Do you live in Kings County? Should I start loading the truck up with the Whiskey?

          I'm curious to know if the winning jackpot ticket was purchased using the Quick Pick Method. It seems a lot of Jackpot winners across the country( and in NY )  have won the first place prize by selceting the "Quick Pick" Method .

                      Happy Birthday !

                      .......... but I have to think it would be nice if I win!

                      .......... and never - ever - promise anyone that you will give them money if you win the lottery ....... too many stories about verbal "agreements" going to court !

                      I would take an early birthday present and not wait until  August !

                          That's a lot of $1,000 since LP has more than 50,000 members.  You can take me off your gift list because I'm also buying a few PB tickets for tonight drawings and if I win I don't have any plans of sharing it with other players at LP.

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

                            LP has 91,896 members.

                            That's $91,896,000 at $1,000 each.

                            That's very generous of you Slugger, lol.

                            I'll accept my $1,000 graciously, thank you.

                            Could I get it in advance if I take $750?
