 Cletus, you selfish hound! LOL, I am just joking. Something is telling me that even if you win the entire jackpot, you would still share with those whom you hold near and dear.

   Good Luck Cletus and Merry Christmas.

True,sandia.But those that I hold near & dear are few.Wife,daughter and grandson.Thats all.

    yes Sandia. I could have swore someone would win when all the numbers were under 32 meaning they could all be birthdates. That must explain the high number of second place wins.

      NOT ME!! Will take the $600 I hit last night, 3+ mega ball with Megaplier!!! Dance

      Whoa! was it a quic pic or your numbers? I know if they are numbers you play often then you must have thought you won a whole lot more the first time you looked at the results.

      Good for you for adding the megaplier

      That money's gone fo ever

         Way to go Cletus, I am sure your wife, daughter and grandson are all you need to brighten your win even more, good luck, I am rooting for you, I can take the smaller Powerball win.Jester

          31 Players won the second prize level. I wonder what's been the greatest number of second place winners without a jackpot winner.

          In the June 29, 2004 Mega Millions draw there were 40 second tier prize winners and no jackpot winner. In the next draw the jackpot was won and there were 37 second tier prize winners.

          In the April 9, 2002 Mega Millions draw there were 35 second tier prize winners and no jackpot winner. In the April 12, 2002 Mega Millions draw there were 44 second tier prize winners and no jackpot winner. In the next draw the jackpot was won and there were 77 second tier prize winners and 3 jackpot winners.

          In the May 5, 2000 Mega Millions draw there were 43 second tier prize winners and no jackpot winner. In the next draw the jackpot was won and there were 72 second tier prize winners and 2 jackpot winners.

          In the April 2, 1999 Mega Millions draw there were 37 second tier prize winners and no jackpot winner. In the next draw the jackpot was won and there were 70 second tier prize winners and 1 jackpot winner.

          My groups are playing both the Mega Millions jackpot and Lotto Max jackpot next week. The Lotto Max jackpot is $50 million plus 10 $1 million prizes all cash and tax free.

          Good luck.

            Good luck but groups don't win very often. Very seldom. Single players win the overwhelming amount of jackpots.

            It can happen (a group win) but it's very rare. You'd be much more likely to win playing by yourself, you should try it.

            Good luck!

                  MM draws on Fridays, which would put it as 12/30 or New Year's Eve Eve.

                   

                  Good luck to everyone! I'm looking to take this one home to Texas. ( Take me home to Texas that's where I'm meant to be... )

                             No hard feelings Piaceri (if you ain't sharing, I might need to think long and hard if I want to share with you) Lol. Either ways, best of luck to you, yeah we have that in my family too, I am the generous one, while my brother has three important people in life to think about mostly "Me, Myself and I" lol......

                              That would be an awesome New Year's gift! But these days, illinois rarely win these things, and my luck pretty much sucks. Oh, well.
