Can you believe 2,024,644 Mega Millions winners will be awarded lottery prizes ranging from $2 all the way to $250,000? That's a lot of lottery winners for a midweek drawing! There may even be a few $1,000,000 winners in the bunch as well if anyone purchased the Megaplier option.

Twenty-one (21) of those Mega Millions winners purchased winning tickets from the California Lottery! Each lottery winner matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for $250,000 each.
The remaining second-tier lottery winners purchased their winning tickets in Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Wisconsin. Any second-tier Mega Millions winners holding Megaplier tickets for this wager will automatically have their lottery prizes increased to $1,000,000!
In addition to the second-tier winning tickets, there were also two-hundred-fifty-one (251) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. If any of these winners purchased Megaplier tickets, they would see their prize winnings multiplied by Tuesday's Megaplier number of 4, to $40,000 instead! With over two million prizes won in the March 20, 2012 drawing, surely you must be a Mega Millions winner?
