The latest round of Mega Millions winning numbers follows a month with a lot of surprises. Powerball is growing for their result for February 26, 2014 after a recent massive payout. But Mega Millions has yet to declare a big winner. Last Friday, Mega Millions had two of their one million dollar winners and sixty-three of their five thousand dollar winners. There were additionally seven Megaplier winners who picked up twenty-five thousand dollars, reps tell news.
Before tonight’s draw, officials told news that the draw just continues to roll over with no big winner. And while tonight is not a record in the history of the game, it a record in recent years. Officials tell news that tonight’s draw is the third largest in last two years. “The third-largest Mega Millions prize in almost two years will be up for grabs on February 25, as the estimated jackpot is now $195 million ($107 million cash option) after no ticket had all six winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing.”
There were some millionaires however named Friday. “Two Match 5 winning tickets correctly had the first five numbers … but missed the Mega Ball of 15. Worth $1 million each, they were sold in Pennsylvania and Virginia. That brings the total number of Match 5 winners to 84 since the game was relaunched last October.”
For now, the draw has a long way to grow before breaking that 2012 record, reported on LALATE back in March of that year. Officials tell news that “The record Mega Millions jackpot is $656 million, set on March 30, 2012. Since then, the only jackpots higher than next Tuesday’s $195 million pot were the $648 million prize on Dec. 17, 2013, and $198 million on May 17, 2013.” For other Powerball and Mega Millions results this week click HERE.
