Hurricane Sandy made a catastrophic mess of the Northeast, but that won't stop the Mega Millions drawing on October 30. The Mega Millions winning numbers are worth an impressive $27,000,000 tonight, and that money will make a huge difference if it goes to one or more lucky Mega Millions winners from one of the horribly battered states. Someone buying Tuesday's winning jackpot ticket from the New York Lottery, New Jersey Lottery, Connecticut Lottery, or the Rhode Island Lottery commission will be very thankful indeed!

CA, CO, NJ, VA Mega Millions Winners Updates
The October 30, 2012 Mega Millions drawing is the fourth since both a California lottery and Massachusetts lottery winner matched all six Mega Millions numbers on October 16. That jackpot was worth $61,000,000, and no one has managed to pick all the correct lottery numbers since then. Someone has to win soon, and it may as well be you!
Massachusetts Mega Millions winner Sandeep "Sunny" Singh of Hyannis already cashed in his half of the $61,000,000 jackpot. However, the California Mega Millions winner still hasn't claimed their $31,500,000 portion yet. If you purchased a ticket from the 7-Eleven store located at 2389 East Shaw Avenue in Fresno, CA, check it immediately. You could be a multimillionaire!
What is it about California lottery winners and not claiming their prizes in a timely manner? Another California Mega Millions winner from Suisun City won a second-tier prize worth $173,000 on September 28 that hasn't been claimed. The winning ticket was purchased at Super Serve Chevron, 4490 Central Way, Suisun City, CA.
There's still no word that the latest $250,000 Mega Millions winners from Colorado, New Jersey, and Virginia claimed their tickets yet either. Could it be that Hurricane Sandy is to blame? Lottery headquarters in New Jersey and Virginia might be closed due to loss of power, but there's no reason the Colorado winner can't claim their prize money. It could also be the latest Mega Millions winners haven't decided what they want to with all their money yet!
