The Mega Millions winning numbers are on the rise. Tonight's winning Mega Millions jackpot is worth an estimated $216 million, or a $119 million onetime payout.
According to a Mega Millions report on Feb. 26, no one matched all six numbers in last Tuesday's drawing, but over 2 million in prize money was collected by players from coast to coast including two $1 million dollar winners. The winning million dollar tickets were sold in Arizona and Maryland.
In case you missed it, the winning numbers in last Tuesday's drawing were 12, 18, 25, 35, 66 and the Mega Ball was 15. For the third straight drawing the multiplier was 5x, which made for some nice payouts.
According to a Michigan.gov lottery update on Feb. 28, nearly 75,000 winning tickets were sold for the last drawing, including twenty six $500 winners, four $5,000 winners and one $25,000 winner.
One thing to keep in mind folks, always double and triple check your tickets. Too many people disregard their tickets once they hear no one has hit the jackpot, when in actuality you may be holding on to a nice cash prize.
