    Guess I should've played Hurley's numbers

    Would've had 4, 8, 15 and MB 42 = $150Jester

     

    Interesting, that was brought up on a FL lottery blog not too long ago, in which those #s matched either 3 or 4 as well

      I had 4 and 8 together, but only because my mom was born in April and my dad was born in August. (Also because yesterday was my birthday - that's the only reason I played). I won $2 with a bonus ball match on my birthday. Yay.

      That prize should pay out far more than $150 if the odds of 3+1 are 1:13,781. That's why I don't play this game on any regular basis - the lower-tier prize payouts are lousy.

      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

          I had one ticket, it's in the trash right now. I wonder how many people went way overboard hoping to win? The odds are crazy. I half expected

          one person to win. I'm happy to see that 2 people won but wish it could have been more.

            ah oh will, glad we know mm can sure pull a nice big run on us, all the players don't play to its high, so the 41 states helps out the must when its high, this run had even me guesting the amounts wrong it was higher!

            but 67 5-0 winners also, this jackpot was doomed atfer that 5th white ball

             

            i just told my self no star bucks coffe for me for the rest of the month,  any money spent was jsut throw away money to begin with :P

             

            was fun to dream about such high amounts :D

                Congratulations to the winners!

                               Party

                That kind of money will really change lives.

                It's very unfortunate that I live in VA.

                The next Mega Millions winner should be from VA.

                Good luck everyone!

                Yes indeed VA is long overdue!!!Dance

                    I told my wife before the drawing that Idaho was going to be a winner how did i know?  mega millions will shift from odds to geographical areas!! Take a minute to think about it every body and every state was in a freenzy,who win two laid back states who have not won in years!! im quite sure Idaho did not have lines of buyers at they retail stores wraped around the building!!! anyways congrats to the winners!!Dance

                          What is the "megaplier" ??

                          The "megaplier" was 4. So those who megaplied and won on the lower tier prizes received 4 times their wins.

                          So if you hit on the $150 level and megaplied, then you walk away with a nice $600 bucks. Not bad for a drawing, provided that the winner did not overspend.

                          I am happy to say that my family broke even in last night's drawing. We spent $20 on 10 combinations and won our $20 back. The same thing happened to us on 12-31-10.

                          So we are able to return the $20 to the gambling fund for our next venture.
