The last Mega Millions drawing on Feb. 23 had a couple of big winning tickets. As a recap, the winning numbers were 5 – 7 – 9 – 20 – 57 with a gold Mega Ball of 15. Additionally, the Megaplier was 3X.
Two winners, one from California and the other from Missouri managed to match all five white balls. The winner in MO added on the optional $1 Megaplier, boosting the prize up to $3 million. The ticket was sold by Gas Mart on 209 E. Grand Avenue in St. Louis.
Now, in California, winners are paid on a pari-mutuel basis. Thus, while in most states matching all five white balls in a drawing is worth $1 million, this particular CA winner has a ticket worth $194k according to the California Lottery.
