Mega Millions Winners March 13, 2012

More than 1.2 million people won prizes, but sadly, no one was fortunate enough to win the $171,000,000 estimated jackpot last night. There were plenty of Mega Millions winners, though. With tickets ranging from between $2 to $250,000, there might even be a millionaire or two thrown in the pot for good luck!

California Mega Millions winners are on a roll this month. The California Lottery sold three (3) Match 5 + 0 winning tickets for $250,000 each for March 13th, just like they did for Friday’s drawing. Californians must be getting ready for St. Patrick’s Day because “the wearing of the green” is coming way too easy for lottery winners on the west coast!

There were an additional six (6) $250,000 winners, one (1) each from the states of Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and two (2) from Virginia. The lottery winners matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number, for the second-tier prize. If any of these winners purchased Megaplier tickets for this wager, they’ll become instant millionaires!

Seventy (70) Match 4 + 1 winners won $10,000 each. Since the Megaplier number for Tuesday was X 3, anyone spending an extra dollar on Megaplier tickets will see their prize winnings multiplied by 3 to $30,000 instead. You can bet anyone that didn’t buy Megaplier tickets this drawing, won’t be so forgetful next time!

Don’t Miss the Next Mega Millions Drawing!

The next Mega Millions drawing is March 16, 2012 at 11:00pm EST. Friday’s estimated jackpot is $200,000,000 annuity, or a one-time cash prize of $145,400,000 before taxes. Mega Millions winning numbers are drawn Tuesday and Friday evenings at WSB-TV in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets are sold in 41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The final Mega Millions results are usually available within a few hours of the drawing.

Please Play Responsibly

Remember, playing the lottery should be fun, but sometimes too much lottery fun can be addictive and could ruin lives. Please play responsibly, and don’t spend more than you’re willing to lose.
