Mega Millions Winning Numbers at $12M February 22: Maryland Lottery Winner Claims $26M Jackpot

Filed in Gather News Channel by on February 22, 2013 0 Comments

Will anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot February 22, 2013? It’s anyone’s guess, but you can’t win, if you don’t play! Friday’s Mega Millions winning numbers are worth $12,000,000 annuity, or $8,000,000 in cold hard cash—minus state and federal taxes of course.

As Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot winner you’ll have some hard choices to make. You can choose between the annuity option, but you’ll have to wait 26 years to collect the entire jackpot. The other option is to take the one-time cash payment of $8,000,000, as soon as Mega Millions cuts the check! but you can spend it all. Again, both options are before Uncle Sam takes his cut which can be rather large.

If no one matches all six Mega Millions numbers Friday night, the next jackpot may reach $15,000,000 or more for the February 26 drawing.

Make sure to check the comments section at the bottom of this page shortly after the drawing for the Friday, February 22, 2013 Mega Millions results.
