Previous drawing February 11
Tuesday’s drawing had winning numbers of 4 – 6 – 32 – 52 – 64 with a Megaball of 06 and a Megaplier of 2x.
The jackpot ticket was sold at a Quick Stop Food Store in Edison, NJ. Thanks to a new law in the Garden State, lotto winners are now allowed to remain anonymous, and this winner may elect to do so.
There was also a million-dollar winner in West Virginia. That person matched all five white balls but did not have the megaplier in play to double the payout. Still, $1 million bucks isn’t too bad.
According to a Mega Millions press release, Tuesday’s drawing yielded 689,521 winning tickets besides the jackpot winner. Fourteen tickets matched four white balls plus the mega ball, worth $10,000. Two of them had the multiplier activated to double it to $20,000.
The jackpot had been rolling over since it was last hit Dec. 17, 2019 in Ohio by The Great Hope Trust. That jackpot was $375 million. Since that drawing, over 7.8 million winning tickets have been sold, including the recent jackpot and 17 additional tickets worth $1 million or more.
