You’ve got to be ‘in it to win it’, and with an amazing $80 million up for grabs in this Tuesday’s Mega Millions lottery jackpot we definitely think you should buy a ticket.
After last week’s draw had no players matching all six numbers the Mega Millions jackpot rolled over. One lucky player from Georgia managed to match the first five numbers, 8, 18, 25, 42 and 49, but missed out on becoming a jackpot winner because they didn’t match the Mega Ball, 14. Players from Delaware, California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Texas and Virginia joined the player from Georgia and took home $250,000 each. That should give them a healthy bank balance!
The Powerball is also worth buying a ticket for this week as the jackpot has been steadily climbing since December 26th. The last Powerball lottery winner was a Florida player who won $50 million. This lottery winner is the fifth player in Florida to win since the Powerball draw began in 2009. No one managed to match all six numbers, but over $5 million was still won, including $2m going to an Oklahoma player. The prize draw now stands at $100 million.
If you do manage to match all six lotto numbers, and decide to take the cash option, you could walk away with approximately $63 million!
And remember: even if you didn’t win the lottery jackpot, be sure to check your tickets against the lottery results before you throw them away. You could still be in with a chance of winning a cash prize. One lucky winner from Michigan managed to match four white balls and the Powerball, boosting her income by $10,000. So check those tickets, you could have won $100 or more!
