For Jan. 21, the Mega Millions jackpot rises again to $347 million after the previous drawing produced no Top Prize winner. The lump sum cash value for tonight’s Grand Prize is $236.6 million.

There were some big winners on Tuesday, however. Four lucky players matched the first five numbers to win the second-largest prize. Three of the four, from NC, PA and TX, paid an extra $1 for the Megaplier option when buying their tickets, making their prizes worth $4 million each.

Mega Millions drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m. EST. Check the winning numbers here after the drawing.

Winning Scratch-Off Gift Causes Conflict

Lottery tickets can make great gifts, but what happens if there’s a dispute over ticket ownership when the ticket wins a large prize? A recent Newsweek article explained one man’s experience after a ticket he gifted to a family member won $50,000.

The man, an anonymous Reddit user, was happy for his cousin who received the winning ticket, but his wife had different feelings about it. In his now viral reddit post he explains, “She told me there is no way that we are giving my cousin $50k, then starts fussing at me about buying the lotto tickets to begin with…She is now demanding I go back in there and take the ticket back from him.”

As Newsweek points out, a recent poll found that 48% of Americans in serious relationships say that finances are a source of arguments with their partner. Whose side would you take in this conflict?

The PA ticket that won $4 million in the last Mega Millions drawing was the largest ever PA Online Lottery prize. A player in Luzerne County purchased a ticket online with the $1 megaplier and matched all five white balls for the big win.
