LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Mega Millions winning numbers for March 4, 2014 results tonight reached two hundred forty million dollars with a cash option of one hundred thirty-three millions dollars. The latest Mega Million winning number if selected would be a record for this year and last year. But will anyone win the Mega Millions numbers tonight for 3/4/14, and if not, how big could the draw become this Friday? Officials tell news that a draw which had stood at two hundred sixteen million dollars has now rolled over to an even bigger draw tonight. Your Mega Millions winning numbers for 3-4-14 will be announced just after 11 pm tonight.
Officials remind fans that Mega Millions is generating millionaires, just not jackpot winners. Prior to announcing the winning numbers for March 4 tonight, reps tell news that “Mega Millions continues to grow, and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday, March 4, is $240 million ($133 million cash option).” And if you didn’t win last week, there is still hope. “There was one winning Match 5 ticket sold in Friday night’s drawing, worth $1 million. The ticket, sold in Georgia, missed the Mega Ball of 6 while matching the first five numbers (3, 31, 50, 58 and 59).”
The latest draw is a record for this year but is also in the top ten of all time draws. “The $240 million jackpot is the seventh largest Mega Millions prize offered in the past five years, and only 14 jackpots have been higher since Mega Millions began in 2002.”
The latest draw is the result of consecutive announcements with no big winner. And when was the last time someone won Mega Millions? That was back in January, reps tell news. “The jackpot has been rolling since January 3, when it was hit for $61 million by Bettina Tina Still and her son Jonathan, both of Nashville, Tenn.” So what is the record? The record Mega Millions jackpot still stands at $656 million. Since that draw on March 30, 2012, the next highest was $648 million prize on Dec. 17, 2013. The winning numbers will be covered HERE at 11 pm this evening.
