Mega Millions Results and Lottery Winners
The final Mega Millions results for Feb. 21, 2014, shows hundreds of thousands of lottery winners will be receiving checks for millions of dollars in prize money very soon. Unfortunately, no one won the $172 million jackpot last night though. That's OK because the jackpot rolled over and is now worth an amazing $195 million for the next drawing on Tuesday, Feb. 25!
There were only two Match 5 + 0 Mega Millions winners from Pennsylvania and Virginia Friday night. The lottery winners matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number for $1 million each. Neither winner purchased the Megaplier option for an extra dollar, otherwise they would have had their prize winnings instantly increased to $5 million! Missing just one number kept the Pennsylvania and Virginia Mega Millions winners from hitting the entire $172 million jackpot.
In addition to the $1 million winners, there were also sixty-two (62) Match 4 + 1 winners. The Mega Millions lottery winners matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, AND the gold Mega Ball number for the third-tier prize of $5,000 each. Seven (7) third-tier winners spent an extra dollar on the Megaplier option and had their prizes automatically multiplied to $25,000 instead of the standard prize of $5,000.
