The past few months may have been challenging for many, but as they say, there’s always something to look forward to. And here’s one news that can brighten your mood: for the second time this year, the Mega Millions jackpot was won.
Last June 9, a single ticket was sold in the state of Arizona which matched all six numbers- the white balls that include 1, 5, 9, 10 and 23, and the gold Mega ball 22. The winning ticket earned $414 million with $319.9 million cash paid awarded to the lucky lottery player. This was bigger than the jackpot won early this year in Edison, New Jersey which was also won by a single player.
This was the state’s first Mega Millions jackpot winner and the computation of the jackpot is based on the actual sales.
Other Lucky Winners Announced
Aside from the massive jackpot, Mega Millions also revealed other big winners from the lotto draw last June 9. 13 winning tickets matched the five white balls, making them eligible for the second prize. Of these tickets, nine are eligible for the $1 million prize. The management revealed that the lucky winners were from Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Washington. Also, three winners purchased their tickets in Florida, Maryland, and Arizona.
Also, four of the ‘match 5’ winning tickets came with $2 million each since these include the ‘Megaplier’. This was an optional feature in many states and during the last draw, it can double your winnings. Of these four tickets, two were sold in New York and one each from South Carolina and Mississippi.
The lottery also produced 74 lucky winners of the third prize. In Mega Millions, you can win this prize category by matching four white balls and the Mega Ball. Thirteen lottery tickets including the ‘Megaplier’ which collected $20,000 each and the remaining tickets earned $10,000.
The June 9 draw was another successful edition for Mega Millions. There were more than 1 million winning tickets in all prize levels including the jackpot.
Mega Millions Jackpot on a Roll
Just like other lottery games, the Mega Million’s jackpot is progressive. It’s been rolling since February 11 and during its run, more than 17.6 million tickets were sold including the jackpot and other prizes that exceeded $1 million. With the win in Arizona this week, the jackpot resets again at $20 million.
And guess what, it can be your turn, soon.
