The Mega Millions jackpot is on the rise. Hopefully you have the winning lottery ticket for Tuesday’s drawing. The Mega Millions winning numbers are worth $13,000,000 annuity, or a one-time $9,500,000 cash value lump-sum payment. After you deduct 25 percent for federal taxes, and state lottery taxes are taken out, you’ll still qualify as a very rich multimillionaire, and have a bundle of money left over to spend on most anything you want!

California Mega Millions Winner Claims $322,019 Lottery Prize
Congratulations to Martha Lopez, of Santa Clara County, California for winning a second-tier Mega Millions prize in a recent drawing. According to California Lottery officials, Lopez purchased her lucky ticket at Sav Mor Food Store, 689 Calderon Avenue, Mountain View in Santa Clara County, for the March 5 drawing. She just got around to claiming it at lottery headquarters yesterday.
Lopez’s lucky Mega Millions numbers were 6, 20, 39, 41, 46. Sadly, she missed the Mega Ball number of 42. The standard size prize for matching five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number is usually $250,000. Lopez, however, hit the mega bucks when she found out her winning Mega Millions ticket was worth a whopping $322,019. In California, Mega Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel, and may vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. Luckily for Lopez, her ticket was a whopper!
Lopez told lottery officials she actually had to pinch herself to make sure she wasn’t dreaming. When she walked into the California Lottery office to claim her prize, she actually had a bruise on her arm to prove it!
