Mega Millions Lottery Winners 3/8/2013

Even though there were no grand prize winners Friday night, there were two (2) Match 5 + 0 winners. The Mega Millions winners purchased their tickets from the California Lottery, and the Kentucky Lottery commissions. The standard size prize for matching five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number is $250,000—or $1,000,000 if the winner purchased a Megaplier ticket.

The Kentucky winner will receive a check for $250,000. Unfortunately, the California winner will receive a check for only $177,762, because Mega Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel in California, and may vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. In this case, the California Mega Millions winner will get a lot less than the Kentucky winner will receive.

There were also twenty-two (22) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. If any of these third-tier winners spent an extra dollar on the Megaplier option, they’ll have their prize winnings multiplied by 4 to $40,000 instead. All together, there were 399,181 Mega Millions winning tickets sold for the March 8 drawing. Are you one of the lucky lottery winners?
