Mega Millions Lottery Winners April 27, 2012
There were eight (8) Match 5 + 0 winners in Friday's game. Two (2) of the second-tier Mega Millions winners purchased their tickets from the California Lottery. California Mega Millions winners don't get the standard payout of $250,000 when they win a second-tier prize. Instead, prize amounts are pari-mutuel and will vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. The last two drawings have awarded California lottery winners with more than $250,000. Don't you wish you lived in California?
There were also three (3) lottery winners that purchased tickets from the Georgia Lottery, and one (1) each from the Massachusetts Lottery, Maryland Lottery, and Ohio Lottery. The winners matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for the April 27th drawing. These Mega Millions prizes are for $250,000 each, unless of course the winners were smart and bought Megaplier tickets, which means their prize winnings will now increase to $1,000,000!
Thirty-eight (38) Match 4 + 1 winners scored prizes of $10,000 each, and another 682,959 tickets for prizes worth $2 to $150 were sold as well. If any of these lottery winners purchased Megaplier tickets for their wagers, they'll have their prize winnings multiplied by 4.
