May’s Mega Millions millionaires

May most certainly was a special month for the world’s lotteries. In the United States, Mega Millions saw two jackpot wins during the month. Two players split the $190 million lottery jackpot from Friday 17th May’s draw, and one player won $30 million in Friday 31st May’s draw.

The latest Mega Millions lottery winner purchased their ticket in the state of New Jersey, which is also where one of the previous winners comes from. Giuseppe ‘Joe’ Garofalo claimed his share of Friday 17th May’s jackpot the day before the next one was won.

America’s other popular game, Powerball, has seen its lottery jackpot won three times too. These three draws have made five new lottery winners rich to the combined tune of $681 million.

In the UK two winners are celebrating big wins on EuroMillions. One scooped the £81 million lottery jackpot in Tuesday 28th May’s draw and another has won £1 million in the EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle in Friday 31st May’s draw. The latter has not only won an instant million in this draw, but will receive one million per month for the rest of the year, as part of a special one-off promotion.

Obviously we are hoping that this month brings as many, if not more lotto jackpot winners, and creates many more millionaires.
