Tonight's Mega Millions Drawing: Get Ready for a Chance at Exciting Prizes!
The projected $1.58 billion Mega Millions jackpot, which was expected to be the highest in lottery history, was won by one ticket purchased in Florida, according to the lottery’s website.
By matching the first five numbers and activating the optional Megaplier, which is available in most states for an additional $1 purchase, two tickets sold in Florida and North Carolina won $2 million.
By matching the first five numbers without the Megaplier, five tickets earned at least $1 million. The winning tickets were purchased in California, Pennsylvania, Texas (two winners), and West Virginia.
According to the California State Lottery, the value of the California ticket vended in Hilmar is$3.38 million. California’s prizes differ from the fixed amounts shown on Mega Millions’ website because they vary according on ticket sales and the number of winners.
