Mega Millions jackpot soars to $121 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions jackpot soars to $121 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $121 million Wednesday, the biggest Mega Millions jackpot in four months.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $100 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.  The next drawing will be Friday.

There were fourteen second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 1 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 3 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 3 from New York, 2 from Ohio, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Virginia.  Those tickets are each worth $175,000.

Sixty-four players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number.  Those tickets are each worth $5,000.

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 18, 23, 27, 29, and 44.  The Mega Ball number was 24.

    pretty darn big.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      I would say it would be around $400 Million.

        If there are no jackpot winners from this date (6/16) until the 7/23 draw---and figuring conservatively--- the jackpot for that draw would be approximately $720-750 million.  ( and, unfortunately, VERY unlikely to occur.  Given that MM will probably be won in the next draw or two, the 7/23 jackpot is more likely to be in the $70 million range assuming no intervening winner)

        Good luck, though.  I'd love to see a new record amount!

          I pray day and night that my Dear friend will get us that lucky lotto ticket. I have dreams too, ya know. We made a deal over a year ago, that we would split the jackpot win 50/50 when our numbers came up.


          Good luck to all.

            I looked at the site and it looks good. One question. Are there any fees? Does all the money collected go towards buying tickets or is some withheld by the organizer?
