More detail on the $333 million winning numbers
Yesterday's report on two tickets winning the biggest Mega Millions jackpot in two-and-a-half-years of $333 million has been followed by a little more detail from the Lottery Post.
The winning numbers were: 1, 17, 31, 37 and 54 with the Mega Ball 31. The Texas Megaplier was 4.
34 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $250 000 prize: 6 from California, 3 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Maryland, 1 from Massachusetts, 2 from Michigan, 6 from New Jersey, 7 from New York, 2 from Ohio, 4 from Texas, and 1 from Washington.
The six California second-prize tickets will receive $220 778 each, because California's pari-mutuel payout system splits the available prize money by the number of winners. The fewer winners, the greater the prize.
210 players matched four of five numbers plus the Mega Ball to net a prize of $10 000. 22 of those third-prize winners were from California and will take home $16 421 each.
The jackpot for the next Mega Millions drawing, next Tuesday night, resets to $12 million.
