Mega MillionsMega Millions: One Arizona lottery ticket wins $410 million Mega Millions jackpotRating:

It's the first Mega Millions jackpot win for an Arizona player

By Todd Northrop

A single ticket sold in Arizona matched the winning numbers from Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing and is worth an estimated $410 million.

The lump-sum cash value of the jackpot is a staggering $316.8 million — up from the estimate of $308.2 million that was established on Saturday. The winner has 180 days from the draw date to claim the prize.

We may never know who won the big prize because last year Arizona became one of the growing number of states to provide the option of anonymity for big lottery winners. Gov. Doug Ducey signed the legislation in August.

The Arizona Lottery says the winning ticket was sold at the Circle K at 67th Avenue and Beardsley Road in Glendale.

Tuesday's winning numbers were 1, 5, 9, 10, and 23, with Mega Ball number 22. The Megaplier was 2.

Apart from the jackpot, 1,130,901 tickets won $24,293,904 in prizes across the game's eight additional prize tiers in Tuesday's drawing.

13 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from Florida, 1 from Maryland, 2 from Michigan, 1 from Minnesota, 1 from Mississippi, 2 from New York, 2 from Pennsylvania, 1 from South Carolina, and 2 from Washington.

Four of the second-prize winners — the tickets sold in Mississippi and South Carolina, as well as both tickets sold in New York — were purchased with the Megaplier option for an extra $1.  Because they purchased the Megaplier, those tickets are now worth $2 million after being multiplier by the Megaplier number of 2.

74 tickets matched four white numbers plus the Mega Ball and won $10,000. Of those tickets, 13 were purchased with the Megaplier option, increasing the prize to $20,000, and 9 were sold in California, where the prize was $4,519 this drawing.

The full breakdown of results and prizes, including the official drawing video, can be found on USA Mega's  Mega Millions Drawing Detail for June 9, 2020.

The jackpot-winning ticket sold in Arizona is the first Mega Millions jackpot winner in Arizona, and just the second Mega Millions jackpot winner from any state in 2020. It is the largest Mega Millions jackpot since a $522 million Mega Millions ticket was claimed in California last September.

The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won in New Jersey on February 11. During this run, there were more than 17.6 million winning tickets sold, including the jackpot winner and 46 other tickets with prize values of $1 million or more.

With the jackpot being won Tuesday, the next Mega Millions annuity jackpot estimate is reset to its starting point of $20 million — down from the previous starting point of $40 million, due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mega Millions is currently offered for sale in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 pm Eastern Time. Tickets cost $2 each.

The Mega Millions winning numbers are published at USA Mega (www.usamega.com) minutes after the drawing takes place.

    Isn't Arizona an anonymous state?

     

    Not my friend in Mesa, darn it.

     

    AZ cannot offer on-line sales, I emailed them about that last week.   Due to Tribal agreements in that state they said. 

     

      My 13 tickets on-line were all losers, and the one I bought in the store hit for $4.

     

    Would really like it if it was a group of players, been some time since that has happened.

        What a joke those big games.!!!

        Usually is 1 winner.

        I wouldn't waste my money on them.

        Why don't they make a bunch of winners on those large amounts ?

          Yes, Bleudog101, Arizona is an anonymous State for big winners. As Todd's original post stated. 

           I was hoping for a win here in California. I am not getting any younger! Green laugh

            " In a way" l was semi right.The winner was closer to the West Coast than the East. I should have gone with the name " Lotto Prophet" originally, but decided against it. Made $6.00 from my $4.00 investment. Oh well, onwards, upwards.

                  Very happy for the person in Arizona. Don't think that I will be playing Mega and Powerball again for A Very long time, if ever! If they think that I'm going to pay them the full price for a game that they have reduced the winnings for by half, then they have a very vivid imagination. I can't understand for the life of me why anybody would play. Now if they charged $1.00 for a ticket, then I might consider it, but still couldn't guarantee that I'd play!! I think that in their effort to be greedy, they are going to eventually ruin a good thing!!!

                    GjTheManHimself I Agree!!   Plus, it sadly takes twice as long for the jackpot to be won.  Before the added numbers, 11 jackpot wins per year. Now sadly, only 3 or 4 jackpot wins/new multi-millionaires created per year. Disapprove

                    Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

                      NOTE: In the "Worldwide Jackpots" section it shows that Lotto Texas has a higher jackpot than Mega Millions!

                      Congrats to the winner in ArizonaCheers

                      Like many people on here I have now quit both the Mega Millions and Powerball until they come up with better versions of both games
                      which does not seem likely anytime soon.

                        .. but would we be hearing that from you IF you won? Did someone drive you to store at gunpoint & tell you to buy a ticket? Come on big guy. Did you forget the odds?

                          It's about perceived value and right now it's not looking good for either Mega millions or Powerball.

                            It's about perceived value and right now it's not looking good for either Mega millions or Powerball.

                            l hear you, but just take a gander at the odds? If you placing a $2.00 bet and you win, your ROI is tremendous. Going into these games with the idea that you & only you are going to win is wishful thinking. I will continue to play my $2.00 because there is always a chance l " could" win. Not playing & complaining is counterproductive.
