Unbelievable! MM goes 4 months without a jackpot winner then shortly after the big jackpot was won you have back to back jackpot winners.

    You just never know when it's going to be won, or where.

    I would have been happy with a megaplied 5+0 win.

        There were 2 winners with all 6 numbers. Nobody had 5 + 0 with or without the Megaplier.

          Hard to imagine the tougher odds being hit twice while not a single ticket won the "easier" second prize.

            They were all low birthday numbers with 3 consecutive numbers. Maby that's why the were two winners.

                Maybe the same person played their numbers in two different states while traveling.

                    I watched the video from last night's drawing. It looked like the ball drop, the cylinder tumbles a few times and then the balls come out on the bottom. But, they are zoomed in so close that for all I know, there is someone placing the balls in the opening.

                    I think they don't mix the balls long enough for them to get mixed properly.

                    Not just  3 consecutive numbers, but all 5 came out in numerical order.....

                      I'd like to know if they picked their own numbers or quick pick.

                        No it won't.

                        LOL I was right!  There were even two winners!

                        Tuesdays drawing will be won too, we'll be seeing minimum jackpots in MM for a long time as the matrix isn't tough enough and it's obviously WAY TOO EASY to win.  MM should go to a 99 white ball and 50 mega ball matrix!

                            I was wondering that too and kind of hoping that was the case.  If not, I kind of feel sorry for the people who won.  You finally win a big jackpot game like megamillions and you end up with $2.5 million after taxes?  That is a lot of money to be sure but not what people have come to expect.

                              Speed of the mix and time in the mix certainly have an impact.  Have you ever tried to calculate the speed of the mixer and measure the amount of time in the mixer along with how far apart timewise the balls come out of the mixer?

                              There are several factors that control the distribution of the numbers and how they come out.
