The latest Mega Millions winning numbers for Friday, October 21, 2011 are 6, 21, 35, 37, 38, the Mega Ball is 17, and the Megaplier is X 3. Since there were no jackpot lottery winners, the next Mega Millions grand prize drawing on Tuesday, October 25th will be worth an estimated $57,000,000 annuity, or $40,700,000 cash-value.
Although not as high as the Powerball jackpot at $173,000,000, winning the next Mega Millions jackpot of $57,000,000 would still make a noticeable difference in your bank account this Christmas. Imagine how many people you could make happy with that kind of money!
Latest Mega Millions Winners for October 21, 2011
The latest Mega Millions drawing wasn't a total bust. There were still a number of lottery winners that will take home plenty of money. There were five (5) second-tier winners that matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball, for $250,000 each. The Mega Millions winners purchased their winning lottery tickets in Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and two (2) from the New Jersey Lottery. If any of these winners also purchased Megaplier tickets, they would instantly increase their winnings to $1,000,000, and who wouldn't like a nice surprise like that?
There were also fifteen (15) third-tier lottery winners that matched four out of five white Mega Millions numbers, and the Mega Ball for $10,000 each. Since the Megaplier was 3, any winners holding Megaplier tickets would see their winnings multiplied by 3 to $30,000.
California Mega Millions Winner
One lucky lottery winner should be sitting pretty right about now, but no one knows who it is yet. The California Lottery claims someone purchased a winning ticket in Duarte (Los Angeles County) for the October 18th drawing. The player matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball. The lottery prize is worth $721,452 and was purchased at Smoke N Stuff, 1094 East Huntington Drive in Duarte, California. The Mega Millions winner has not come forward to claim this prize at this time. What are they waiting for?
