Someone won the Mega Millions jackpot in Pennsylvania Lottery for the last drawing's $152,000,000 grand prize. Do you think someone from Lottery Post hit MM jackpot last night? There a lot of people from Pennsylvania on here.

    As a former pennsylvanian mainly from philly i can tell you that most of the jackpot winners have come from outside the city, usually from the small towns or rural areas. And thats what i think we are going to see. As for someone from pa here on LP winning it maybe or maybe not. It seems that 3 of the top five states with the most winners have represented in this drawing. NY, Texas, and PA. California and Florida did not get this one. Not even NJ. But i suspect that might happen with the powerball coming up. Virginia is the dark horse that could creep up on it because they have been on a hot streak with 5 or 6 2nd place winners over the last 2 months just missing the bonus ball from both games.

        This is why mm and pb are not very exciting anymore, except if you live in the list of regular winning states.  This includes second tier prizes also.

          I just checked my ticket, it appears that I have matched the mega ball.

              At least now PB's 80M jackpot will start getting some attention, a $2 ticket with the smaller jackpot wasn't getting much before.

                Not from me it won't. I refuse to spend 2 bucks on PB, and I don't want broke in debt puerto rico getting any of my money.

                  It is the same with pb, except a 2.00 ticket.  For the most part, the same states will win the jackpot and second tier prizes.

                      I've matched three numbers including the mega ball. My heart started to race when  I saw some numbers matching but then it just flatlined when the others didn't match. So close. But at least I seem to be matching more numbers frequently after buying tickets from this new store.

                              Good question.  I dont know.  Is it true you dont have to pay the usual taxes in PA?
