It actually rolled last night!  I was shocked!  How could it be that no one won?  The game had been WAY TOO EASY to win.

    And the tickets are only $1??!!  This rolling has to be stopped, jj. LOL

        Although there was no jackpot winner in last night's Mega Millions drawing, there was one 5 of 5 winner in Ohio that had paid an extra dollar for the Megaplier and won $3 mil.

        That's a nice amount to receive for a $2 purchase price

            A lot people just have a ticket in every game hoping for a million or more--like me.  Sometimes one of them gets lucky.

              On the topic of 5m$ vs 50m$, the higher your take home the more mistakes you can afford making. 5m$ melt away quickly.

                Some people handle money better than others.  That's a lot of money to "melt away".

                  Hopefully by being on the Lottery Post it has given all of us an insight to the rights and wrongs of what to do when hitting it big.

                  Most of us, I hope, would know what needs to be done and don't make the kinds of mistakes that those who have been fortunate enough to win, but not smart enough to get advice on how to keep what they won and not lose it all.

                  If you won $5 mil and made mistakes in handling the money, yes it would melt away quickly. Winning more and losing it just means that you made bigger mistakes.

                      Looks like it's switching back to the " Can't be won until EVERY combination is played" mode as you mentioned when it was climbing up a few weeks ago.

                          5x was the Megaplier. One ticket, purchased in NJ matched 5 of 5 and had the Megaplier for a cool $5 mil cash prize!

                          It seems that 5x comes out a lot too with mega.

                            You may have been looking at the wrong game. Mega Millions has the number 4 Mega number drawn just twice in the last 15 drawings.
