Mega Millions: $224 million lottery to be draw on April 30, 2010. Tonight across the United States, millions of lottery ticket holders will be hoping to match all of the Mega Millions winning numbers to win a $224 million jackpot.
The Mega Millions winning numbers are: 23, 37, 41, 50, 55 and a Mega Ball number of 6. The estimated jackpot was $191 million in the latest lottery with zero top prize winners. There were 13 winners for the prize of $250,000.
Four of those winning tickets were sold in California, two were sold in Illinois, with the other winning tickets sold in Arizona, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Sixty one winners won the prize of $10,000 which requires four correct numbers plus the Mega Ball.
The lump-sum cash value of the massive prize is $138.1 million, eclipsing the $124.8 million Powerball jackpot cash value won last week by a convenience store clerk from Missouri.The Powerball jackpot has grown to $45-million after no winner took the grand prize in Wednesday night’s drawing. The winning numbers were 12 – 22 – 25 – 28 – 44, PB 24, Power Play x4.
Five lucky tickets in Florida (1), Illinois (1), South Carolina (1), Tennessee (1), and Virginia (1) matched all 5 white numbers and won $200,000 cash each.
In addition, 641,005 tickets across the nation won a total of $6,108,659 in prizes. One of those was a $10,000 winning ticket sold in Arkansas. It matched four white balls and the Powerball but did not include the Power Play which would have quadrupled the prize to $40,000.
The cash option for the Saturday, May 1st drawing will be an estimated $21.9 million.
Players should carefully check their tickets after every draw. Even if there are no jackpot winners there are always tens of thousands of winners at other prize levels.
