LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Mega Millions winning numbers for 2-25-14 last night produced no winner. So the Mega Millions winning numbers for February 28, 2014 results have now grown to $219M. Officials tell news that no one won Mega Millions last night 2/25/14. So the payout is rolling out with another massive take this Friday. It won’t be a record. But it will be one of the largest payouts in the game in the last two years. The results will be announced just before 11 pm EST this Friday.
Officials tell news that the Mega Millions winning numbers for February 28, 2014 results are worth two hundred sixteen million dollars. The cash option has grown to one hundred nineteen million dollars. They previously called Tuesday night’s draw the “third-largest Mega Millions prize in almost two years”. Only two payouts have ever been higher, the record of $656 million, set on March 30, 2012, and this second bigger prize of $648 million prize on Dec. 17, 2013.
Reps tell news today “Friday’s drawing will be the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot since the record $656 million prize on March 30, 2012. Only last December’s $648 million jackpot was higher.”
Last night’s draw delivered a massive turnout as well. “More than 2.2 million winning Mega Millions tickets, at all prize levels except the jackpot, were sold for the February 25 drawing. They were led by the two $1 million Match 5 winners, from Arizona and Maryland. Other prizes range from $5,000 down to $1. For the third consecutive draw, the optional Megaplier number was 5, so anyone holding a winning ticket that included the extra $1 purchase saw their prize automatically increase by a factor of five.” For Mega Millions and Powerball winning numbers this week click HERE.
