The final Mega Millions results are here, so grab your tickets and see if you're a lottery winner! The Mega Millions winning numbers for April 3, 2012, are 11, 35, 38, 41, 52, the Mega Ball number is 40, and the Megaplier is X 4. The piddly jackpot for Tuesday night was only $12,000,000.
Now for the good news, and the bad news. Unfortunately, no one won the $12,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday night. That's the bad news. The good news is, the jackpot amount rolled over and is now worth an estimated $20,000,000! Not much of a motivator since the recent March 30, 2012 Mega Millions jackpot hit a staggering $656,000,000. But now it's time to sit back and be patient. The teeny Mega Millions jackpot needs time to grow and accumulate more money before someone wins again. Of course, winning $20,000,000 is still a good deal for a $1 wager!
Mega Millions Winners April 3, 0212
In comparison to the historic March 30th Mega Millions jackpot drawing that saw 16,352,615 lottery winners in all prizes levels, there were only 550,084 winning tickets sold for the April 3rd drawing. What a drastic difference!
Although there were no jackpot winners for the April 3rd drawing, there were two (2) Match 5 + 0 winners for $250,000 each. The winning tickets matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for the second-tier prize. If the two lottery winners bought Megaplier tickets for this wager, they would see their prize-winning automatically increased to $1,000,000! The tickets were sold by the Pennsylvania Lottery and the Texas Lottery.
There were also thirty-five (35) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. If any of these winners purchased the Megaplier option, their prize winnings would be multiplied by 4 to $40,000 instead! How many tickets did you buy Mega Millions tickets for the April 3rd drawing? And more importantly, did you win anything?
