Mega Millions Lottery Winners 2/18/2014
It was a lean night last night for Mega Millions. Not only were there no Mega Millions jackpot winners Tuesday night, but there was only one (1) Match 5 + 0 winner for $1 million. The newly minted millionaire purchased their Mega Millions winning ticket from the Florida Lottery and matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, missing only the gold Mega Ball number for the second place prize. Sadly, the Florida Mega Millions lottery winner was just one number away from the massive $154 million jackpot.
There were thirty-one (31) Match 4 + 1 winners that will be receiving checks for $5,000 each. The winners correctly matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, AND the gold Mega Ball number for the third-tier prize. Three (3) Match 4 + 1 winners purchased Megaplier tickets which means their prize winnings instantly multiplied to $25,000 instead of the standard prize of $5,000.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot in lottery history was $656 million (cash option of $474 million). It was split by three Mega Millions lottery winners on March 30, 2012. See the article Illinois, Kansas, Maryland lottery winners share Mega Millions winning numbers for more details.
