Mega Millions Winners 2/24/2012
The Mega Millions jackpot was up to an estimated $83,000,000 annuity for the February 24th drawing. Unfortunately for all those multimillion dollar hopefuls, there were no grand prize winners.
There were, however, eight (8) Match 5 + 0 winners for $250,000 each. The lottery winners matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for the second-tier lottery prize. Two (2) of the Mega Millions winners purchased their tickets from the New Jersey Lottery. The remaining winners bought tickets from the California Lottery, Massachusetts Lottery, New York Lottery, Ohio Lottery, Texas Lottery, and the Virginia Lottery commissions. If any of the $250,000 winners spent an extra dollar and bought a Megaplier ticket, their lottery prize winnings would automatically jump to $1,000,000! How about that for a $1 investment?
In addition to the second-tier prizes, there were also fifty (50) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. Since the Megaplier number was X 4 for the February 24th drawing, any third-tier winners with Megaplier tickets will have their $10,000 winnings instantly multiplied to $40,000. You can bet the players that didn't buy Megaplier tickets will be buying them from now on!
When is the Next Mega Millions Drawing?
The next Mega Millions drawing is Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 11:00pm ET.
