The very first Mega Millions drawing for March will take place tonight. The jackpot is now at an estimated $65 million ($48.6 million cash option) after rolling over again.
The winning numbers for Friday, Feb. 28 were 14 – 2 – 3 – 41 – 64 with a megaball of 17 and a 2x megaplier. No tickets matched all five white balls, so no jackpot and no million-dollar winners.
Ten players did match four white balls plus the megaball. Nine of them won $10,000 while one doubled that to $20,000 with the $1 megaplier in play. Another 283 tickets matched four white balls to win $500. And 39 of them doubled it to $1,000 with the megaplier.
If you could use an extra $48.6 million, or any extra cash for that matter, be sure to grab your tickets for the Mega Millions and Powerball drawings this week.
