One lucky ticket holder in Washington State for the $25 mil Mega Millions jackpot.

It proves that not a lot of tickets have to be sold to produce a winner.....just the right combination of the 258,890,850 possibilities.

Also, one ticket matched the five white balls for a million, but paid an extra dollar for megaplier and will get $5 mil.

Congrats to the lucky ticket holders

      Who in the heck plays when it is so low!?  The media feeding frenzy wouldn't be worth the trouble for that chump change after the taxes are taken out.

          Well......

          that's good enough for me to retire on.

            Thank you for posting this not the odds but the ticket holder.  I thought that is what I looked at and eyes weren't going on me.   Congrats to that lottery ticket holder(s).

                Two tickets split a 15 million dollar jackpot. The Texas megapiler person is gonna get more money than the Georgia jackpot winner and he'll have more than the Virginia jackpot winner. I think I'm gonna re think my distaste of multipliers considering how it can get you more money than a jackpot winner.

                  How do you figure that?

                  Georgia:          $7,500,000; States taxes 6% + 39.6% = 45.6% ; $4,080.000

                  Virginia:          $7,500,000; State taxes 4% + 39.6% = 43.6% ; $4,230,000

                  Texas:              $5,000,000; No State tax + 39.6% = 39.6% ; $3,020,000

                  (realizing taxes on the first $415,050 for single filers and $466,950 for married filers will be less than stated, but across the board).

                    I'm feeling a jackpot win coming my way!

                    BUY ME A BOAT

                    I ain’t rich, but I sure wanna be
                    Working like a dog, ain’t working for me
                    I wish I had a rich uncle that’d kick the bucket
                    And that I was sitting on a pile like Warren Buffett
                    I know everybody says money can’t buy happiness

                    But it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
                    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some Silver Bullets
                    Yeah, I know what they say, money can’t buy everything
                    Well, maybe so, but it can buy me a boat

                    They call me redneck, white trash and blue collar
                    I could change all that if I had a couple million dollars
                    I keep hearing money is the root of all evils
                    And you can’t fit a camel through the eye of a needle
                    I’m sure that’s probably true, but it still sounds pretty cool

                    ‘Cause it could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
                    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some silver bullets


                    Yeah, I know what they say, money can’t buy everything
                    Well, maybe so, but it can buy me a boat

                    To float down on the water with a beer…
                    I hear the Powerball is sitting’ on a hundred mill…
                    Well, that would buy me a brand new rod and reel…

                    It could buy me a boat, it could buy me a truck to pull it
                    It could buy me a Yeti 110 iced down with some Silver Bullets
                    Yeah, I know what they say, money can’t buy everything
                    Well, maybe so, but it could buy me a boat

                    Yeah, I know what they say, money can’t buy everything
                    Well, maybe so, but it could buy me a boat
                    It could buy me a boat.

                      The 15 million is an ANNUITY, Cash was 10 million which split means they walk away about with 5 million each before taxes.  It's unlikely either would choose such a low annuity.

                        I would rather read that it was won in Oregon...and the winner was Weshar75. His win is long overdue.

                          Congratulations to the winning Mega Millions jackpot winning ticket in Washington.

                          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!
