The Mega Millions jackpot grows again.
For Tuesday, August 18, the Mega Millions estimated jackpot grows to $40 million. And, for those interested in the cash option, it is $31.7 million.
On Friday, August 14, the Mega Millions winning numbers were 3 – 24 – 29 – 42 – 47 and a megaball of 13. Additionally, if you played the $1 Megaplier option, it was 2X.
Interestingly enough, no one matched five whiteballs. Nationwide, 19 total winners matched four white balls plus the gold megaball. Out of the 19, 2 of the tickets were PA winners. These tickets were worth $10,000 each.
Historic PA Mega Millions jackpot winners
Just because no one hit the big Mega Millions jackpot or matched 5 white balls this past drawing to become millionaires, doesn’t mean that PA doesn’t have its share of jackpot winners.
In fact, the Keystone State holds title to two big Mega Millions jackpot winners:
- Steve Peloquin bought a winning ticket for the July 21, 2015 drawing at the Penn 80/Flying J Travel Plaza in Milton, Northumberland County. The cash value was an incredible $91.8 million.
- Carl Szott of Pittsburgh technically holds title as PA’s first jackpot winner. (Peloquin is actually considered a Virginia resident.) On May 20, 2014, Szott won $86.7 million by purchasing his life-changing ticket at White Oak Gas and Grocery in Allegheny County.
