Woo Hoo! The Mega Millions jackpot is growing. The April 6, 2012 Mega Millions winning numbers are now worth $20,000,000 annuity, or $14,000,000 cash! Friday's amount doesn't come close to the $656,000,000 jackpot that was hit one week ago on March 30th, but $20,000,000 is nothing to sneeze at, and will pad your bank account quite nicely if you won.
So get your tickets now before you forget, because as the New York Lottery says, "Hey, you never know!" You could be tonight's newest multimillionaire!
$227,955 California Mega Millions Winners
More California Mega Millions winners are coming forward to claim their prizes from the March 30th drawing. Zvart Goryan and Tonya Hill are two of the 29-lucky second-tier California lottery winners that scored $227,955 each as part of the historic $656,000,000 Mega Millions jackpot. The two winners went into the California Lottery's Santa Fe Springs District Office to claim their winnings on Wednesday.
Zvart Goryan purchased her ticket at News Plus Montebello, 1728 Montebello Town Center, Montebello (Los Angeles County), CA, and Tonya Hill purchased her winning ticket at Bluebird Liquor, w13746 South Hawthorne Blvd., Hawthorne (Los Angeles County), CA. They both matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number. Second-tier Mega Millions prizes normally pay out $250,000 in all other states but California, where prize amounts are pari-mutuel, and will vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners.
The most recent Mega Millions results for the Tuesday, April 3rd drawing, were 11, 35, 38, 41, 52, and the Mega Ball number was 40. There were no Mega Millions jackpot winners for this drawing.
