Mega Millions Winners August 17, 2012
If you bought lottery tickets for Friday's game, you're probably looking for a list of Mega Millions winners, and which states sold the big tickets? While there were some big winning tickets sold, there were unfortunately no $45,000,000 jackpot winners in the August 17 drawing.
There were four (4) Match 5 + 0 for $250,000 each. The Mega Millions winners purchased their lucky tickets from the Michigan Lottery, New Jersey Lottery, Ohio Lottery, and South Carolina Lottery commissions. The second-tier prize winning amounts are normally $250,000 eachÂ—unless the lottery winners spent an extra dollar on a Megaplier ticket which would mean their tickets would be automatically increased to $1,000,000. What a great investment! For an extra dollar you could be a millionaire!
There were also twenty-six (26) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. The lottery winners matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, and the Mega Ball number for the August 17 drawing. With the Megaplier number being 3, any third-tier winners who purchased Megaplier tickets will see their prize winnings multiplied to $30,000 instead!
Are you one of the August 17 Mega Millions lottery winners? If so, sign the back of your tickets immediately and put them in a safe place until you're ready to claim your lottery prizes. What will you spend your new found riches on?
