ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Mega Millions winning numbers for September 27, 2013 will reach one hundred seventy-three million dollars tonight. That is, however, if someone correctly selects all the right numbers, a feat that has not happened for weeks. While Powerball winning numbers this week have garnered much of the attention nationally, Mega Millions has been moving up fast. The Mega Millions winning numbers results for tonight 9-27-13 will be announced in three hours from now at 11 pm EST tonight.
Mega Millions winning number results tonight for September 27, 2013 will be revealed this evening, roughly four years after the amazing win by Steve Williams. At the time, Steve Williams knew he had a winning ticket. But he didn’t claim it. For five months he held out. “For nearly five months he waited, holding a Mega Millions ticket that he knew was worth $200 million”, officials told news at the time. “Finally, on March 12, 2010, he officially claimed his prize, becoming the second-largest winner in the Virginia Lottery’s history.”
Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto in a presentation at James Madison University in Harrisonburg told news the importance of Steve’s win. “This is the second-largest prize ever won by a Virginia Lottery player,” said Ms. Otto. “We are delighted, not just for Mr. Williams’ incredible prize, but also the millions of dollars the Virginia Lottery raises for K-12 public education in Virginia each year.”
At the time, it was only the sixth win in the state since the game was introduced in 2002. “Mr. Williams, who works as a carpenter, said he waited to claim his prize so he could assemble and meet with financial and legal advisors to plan for his future.”
UPDATE: Results have just been announced tonight. Your winning numbers are 9, 23, 27, 49, 51, Mega: 38, Megaplier: 2. For Powerball and Mega Millions results this week click HERE.
