You're probably wondering, did anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot on Dec, 3, 2013? The Mega Millions winning lottery numbers are 7, 12, 41, 44, 59, the Mega Ball number is 3, and the Megaplier is X 3, announced ABC 2 News on Wednesday, Dec. 4. While there were hundreds of thousands of lottery winners Tuesday night, no one won was fortunate enough to win the $257 million jackpot. The good news is the jackpot rolled over and is now worth a mind-blowing $291 million!
Mega Millions.com reports there was only one (1) Match 5 + 1 winner on Dec. 3. The Mega Millions winning ticket was purchased in Missouri. The lottery winner will receive a check for $1 million—before taxes of course! The second-tier Missouri lottery winner matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number for the Dec. 3 drawing. The Missouri Mega Millions winner was just one number away from the $257 million jackpot. There were no Megaplier winners, but if there were, they would have had their prize winnings automatically increase to $3 million instead of the standard $1 million prize amount.
There were also seventy-three (73) Match 4 + 1 winners on Tuesday night that will receive $5,000 each. Each third-tier lottery winner matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, AND the gold Mega Ball number. Seven (7) Megaplier winners had their prize winnings multiplied by the Megaplier of 3 to $15,000 instead of the standard $5,000 amount.
