At the same time, I'm bummed as I somehow know it wasn't me.

I didn't even win 2nd prize.

I just know it. I likely won a $2 or $4 prize max, as usual.

Anyway, I'm happy for the winners.

I'm glad it's over.

  • Don't chase the numbers you play.
  • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
  • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.

    Preliminary results show one winner, but it doesn't say where it was won.

    Look at all the other non-jackpot winners!

    Winning Numbers 7/8/2016

    Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 pm ET. Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 75; one ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 15. You win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date. There are nine ways to win a prize, from $1 to the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing. Overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 15.

      We will all know in the morning later on unlike powerball.  I knew it was going to get hit this week.  These lotteries are weird.

            I just hope it's someone who remembered to check their ticket haha. Yeah, that has to be an incredible feeling. I don't even know where one would start. Probably up all night long, that's an easy guess lol.

                The Mega Millions Jackpot winner was sold in Indiana.

                I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!
