ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Mega Millions winning numbers for December 3, 2013 results tonight are surging to $257 million dollars. The Tuesday night numbers are carrying one of the highest draws and cash value in several weeks. Tonight’s Millions winning numbers for 12-3-13 carry a one hundred thirty-nine million dollar cash value. But will anyone correctly select the right numbers tonight? The results will be announced in a just few hours from now, at 11 pm EST.
The latest Millions winning numbers for 12-3-13 results tonight follows several weeks of the draw rolling over with no big winner. While several million dollar winners have been named, none have hit the jackpot. Recently, officials announced the first $3 million winner out of North Carolina and the first five million dollar winner out of Texas.
Those unusual amounts are the result of the new Megaplier 4x instituted back in late October 2013. One of the last major jackpot announcements however was back on Halloween. That day, Lewis Howard won the $99 million jackpot. He also became the fifth-largest prize in Virginia Lottery’s 25 years. “I thought, ‘Okay, so I have all six numbers,’.I really wasn’t that excited”, he told news at the time. So why was he so calm? “I’m just an ordinary person. I’m still the same person.”
Virginia Lottery Executive Director Paula Otto said in a news statement at the time “We commend Mr. Howard for taking his time to assemble a team of financial and legal advisors. This is Virginia’s seventh Mega Millions jackpot win, and the fifth-largest prize ever awarded by the Virginia Lottery.” For Mega Millions winning numbers tonight at 11 pm click HERE.
