Mega MillionsMega Millions: $177 Million:" Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $177 million Wednesday, the largest jackpot in 4 months.

The last time the jackpot was $177 million was on Tuesday, February 17, 2004.  That drawing, the jackpot rolled over to $239 million, when it was won by J.R. Triplett, claiming the the second-biggest undivided jackpot in U.S. history.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $150 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were 14 second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 2 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 3 from New Jersey, 4 from New York, 2 from Texas, and 1 from Virginia.  Those tickets are each worth $175,000.

Ninety-one 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: 9, 10, 17, 41, and 52.  The Mega Ball number was 19.

The Mega millions group must think "177" is a lucky number...

      As the article mentioned, in February, the Mega Millions jackpot was won one drawing after the jackpot was $177 million, at $239 million.

      On May 8 this year, the $213 million Powerball jackpot was won, after climbing from $170 million.

      If history repeats itself, there won't be a jackpot winner this Friday, but there will be one the following Tuesday, June 29.
