Second-place Mega Millions winners

A lucky ticket sold in Virginia matched all five white balls. However, the ticket missed the Mega Ball to win the whole jackpot. Nonethess, this ticket is worth $1 million before taxes and withholdings.

Another ticket sold in Rhode Island that also matched all five white balls. However, this ticket tacked on the additional and optional $1 Megaplier, which doubled the prize to $2 million.

No plans for third drawing

With all the fuss about Powerball adding a third drawing on Monday, many are wondering if the Mega Millions plans on following suit. However, Pat McDonald, President of the Mega Million Consortium stated that the game is always evaluating remaining “on the forefront of consumers’ minds but doesn’t plan to add more drawings.”
