Did you buy your winning Mega Millions tickets for tonight's drawing? With $20,000,000 at stake, matching all six Mega Millions winning numbers on March 22 will get you the entire jackpot! Although all eyes are focused on Saturday's Powerball drawing, hopeful Mega Millions winners are betting their luck will hold and their lottery numbers for the Mega Millions game will be the correct combination.
Even if you don't win the $20,000,000 jackpot Friday night, there's still a lot of lottery prizes available. If you match five numbers but miss the Mega Ball, you'll receive a check for $250,000.

California Mega Millions Winner Claims Lottery Prize Worth Over $150K
Congrats to the latest California lottery winner! The last Mega Millions drawing may not have produced a jackpot winner, but one California winner will be singing all the way to the bank when they realize they won the second place prize worth $151,276. The standard amount for Match 5 + 0 prize is normally $250,000, but in California, Mega Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel, and may vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. Sadly, this lottery winner will receive a much smaller check.
According to California Lottery officials, the Mega Millions ticket was purchased at Alag Gas and Food Mart, located at 7741 Auburn Boulevard in Citrus Heights, for the second-tier prize. The lottery winner matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for the March 19 drawing. At this time, the Mega Millions winning ticket remains unclaimed.
Don't wait too long to claim your ticket if you believe you're the lucky lottery winner. California Lottery officials say winners only have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim their prizes. Whatever you do, don't let your winning ticket expire!
