Mega Millions Lottery Winners 11/2/2012
Talk about awesome timing! This is exactly what the people of New York need to hear after Hurricane Sandy crippled the state this week. Wouldn't it be awesome if the New York Mega Millions winner donated someÂ—or allÂ—of his or her millions to the homeless people in need? $32,000,000 could go a long way in rebuilding some of the hardest hit neighborhoods if the money was spent locally. It'll be interesting in the coming days or weeks to hear who this mystery New York Mega Millions winner is!
Not only did a New York lottery winner score the huge jackpot Friday night, but another Mega Millions winner purchased a $250,000 ticket from the Pennsylvania Lottery. They were also hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, Hopefully the Pennsylvania lottery winner spent an extra dollar on the Megaplier option. That may instantly increase their prize winnings to $1,000,000 instead!
There were a total of four (4) Match 5 + 0 winners in last night's drawing. The remaining three (3) $250,000 Mega Millions winners purchased their tickets from the Texas Lottery and two (2) from the Illinois Lottery commissions. Megaplier tickets may also mean these winners could be millionaires and not even know it! Each lottery winner matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball for the second-tier prize.
An additional thirty (30) Match 4 + 1 winners will be receiving checks for $10,000 each. Megaplier tickets for these winners would automatically multiply their winnings to $30,000. Can you imagine not spending the extra dollar and missing out on $20,000?
Congratulations to all the November 2 Mega Millions winners, especially to the New York lottery winner on scoring the $32,000,000 jackpot!
When is the Next Mega Millions Drawing?
The next Mega Millions drawing will be held on November 6, 2012 at 11:00 p.m. ET. Because someone won Friday's grand prize, Tuesday's jackpot will be reset to $12,000,000 annuity, or a one-time lump-sum cash payment of $9,000,000. Both amounts are before taxes. Mega Millions winning numbers are drawn Tuesday and Friday evenings at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets are sold in 42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Remember, playing the lottery should be fun, but sometimes too much lottery fun can be addictive and could ruin lives. Please play responsibly, and don't spend more than you're willing to lose.
