2 tickets win Mega Millions jackpot worth $190M

Mega MillionsMega Millions: 2 tickets win Mega Millions jackpot worth $190M
54
Rating:

A Mega Millions jackpot advertised at $190 million has been won by two tickets, one sold in New Jersey, the other in Virginia.

They matched all the numbers drawn Friday night: 11, 15, 35, 43 and 49, with Mega Ball number 41.  The Megaplier was 4.

Winners usually take the cash payout, which in this case would be $70 million each. Before taxes, of course.

Seventeen tickets missed only the Mega Ball and won second worth $250,000:  1 from Colorado, 1 from Iowa, 1 from Maryland, 3 from Michigan, 3 from New Jersey, 3 from New York, 2 from Pennsylvania, 1 from Texas, 1 from Washington, and 1 from Wisconsin.  The prize jumps to $1 million if the player also bought the Megaplier prize-boosting option.

The Mega Millions jackpot resets to $12 million for Tuesday's drawing, which could prove a boon to rival Powerball's quest to set the U.S. lottery jackpot record.

Powerball has top prizes of $600 million for the annuity — an all-time Powerball record — and $376.9 million for the cash.

The jackpot has been boosted twice since Wednesday's drawing, from $475 million to $550 million on Thursday, then to its current $600 million on Friday.

Strong sales Saturday could mean another hike, threatening the biggest jackpot ever. That was $656 million annuity in the March 30, 2012, Mega Millions drawing. The three winners, who bought their tickets in in Maryland, Illinois and Kansas, split the $471 million cash payout.

Congrats to the winners. I was hoping Florida would get a winner on the first drawing.

          Lucky winners will be overshadowed by the massive PB frenzy. Less attention on their win is a good thing though.

                California did not get a single second prize winner. A lucky Californian would have walked away with $1,304,520 for matching 5. 

                That money's gone fo ever

                       Congratulations to the winners. Enjoy being under the shadow of the "big one", no crazy frenzy around your win which, is actually blessing.

                       

                        Florida? Well, that might not sit well with the older members in the game Green laugh. Nah, no hard feeling, truly. But hey, welcome to the family. If Florida wins, she wins.

                       

                         Good Lucj Win$500Quick

                        I just heard on the news that the winning NJ ticket in the MM last night was sold in my town, Tinton Falls, NJ. However, it wasn't me!

                        Why?

                            Hi Jill, I didn't get my MM tickets there but I did buy my PB tickets there for tonights drawing without knowing that the winning MM ticket was sold there. Can lightning strike twice in two days? that's the odds i'm facing.
