      Howdy Orange23,

      That has happened several times in PB. Here is  the winners list for the last couple of years. You can check the date to see the multiple winners. I saw one instance of 3 winners while looking at the list.

      Good Luck,

      Bryan  :)

        The biggest North American lottery jackpot ever was BigGame $300M+ was won by 3 players.  BigGame became MegaMillions when Ohio and NewYork joined.

            That was the second biggest at $331 million.

            The largest was $363 million and that was won by two tickets.

            Last December a $30 million Powerball jackpot was shared by three tickets from Pennsylvania, Nebraska, and Arizona.

            Mega Millions has never had a shared jackpot since it started.  (Note: not including the Big Game, which was a different matrix.)

             

            Check the State Lottery Report Card
            What grade did your lottery earn?

               Mega Millions did so have a shared jackpot.  On November 11, 2003, three tickets shared a $70 million jackpot (although two of those tickets belonged to the same person).
