Mega Millions Winners September 27, 2011
Although there were no $96,000,000 Mega Million grand prize winners Tuesday night, there were nine (9) Match 5 + 0 winners for $250,000 each which is more second-tier prizes than normal in a weekday drawing. Three (3) $250,000 winners purchased their winning lottery tickets in California, two (2) in New York, two (2) in Ohio, and one (1) each in Illinois and Texas.
If any of these winners spent an extra dollar and purchased Megaplier tickets, their prize winnings would automatically increase to $1,000,000. Mega Millions players that won $250,000 but didn’t fork over an extra dollar for the Megaplier option will no doubt be crying in their cereal this morning!
There were also forty-two (42) winners that matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, and the Mega Ball for $10,000 each. Since the Megaplier number for the drawing was 4, third-tier winners holding Megaplier tickets will see their $10,000 winnings multiplied by 4 to $40,000! In addition to the high-tier prizes, there were 684,891 tickets sold that were worth between $2 and $150.
Congrats to all the winners! How much did you win? With a grand total of 684,942 Mega Millions winners last night, surely you must have won something… even of it was only $2!
