Mega Millions winning numbers are 1, 31, 33, 34, 50 and the Mega Ball is 41. The Megaplier is 4, meaning that if you win a prize and you chose that megaplier you will be extremely lucky! There are several Mega Millions winners who have won a reported $250,000 - enough to pay off an average home!
I played the Mega millions, but I haven't checked my numbers yet. I like to dream about the "what ifs", although at this time I know I was not the big winner.
The Mega Millions lottery has climbed to $52 million, with a $34 million cash option - meaning that after you pay taxes you would walk away with about half that. Hey - I'd take it!
I will likely check my Mega Millions ticket when I go get gas later on today. If I win, it will likely just be $2-$3, in which case I will "reinvest" my earnings and purchase another ticket.
Tonight, the PowerBall lotto numbers are drawn. That jackpot is up to $72 million. In certain states you can play both games. In others, you can only buy one type of ticket.
Winnings range from the jackpot and then from $250,000 down to $2 or $3.
