Mega Millions Gets A $522 Million Winner
The dream of a financial windfall to the tune of $522 million has come true for one lucky Mega Millions lottery player. In last night's drawing (July 24) one single ticket matched all of the numbers needed to claim the multi-state lottery jackpot.
Based on reports from Mega Millions Lottery officials a single ticket matched all of those numbers and that ticket was purchased at a liquor store in San Jose California. There were eight other tickets that matched the five white ball numbers for a one million dollar prize. Two of those eight tickets opted to purchase the Megaplier option which meant their prize was upped to three million dollars.
Unfortunately, none of the big money prize winning tickets appear to have been sold in Louisiana. That's okay. We've still got the Powerball drawing tonight. That jackpot is estimated to be $147 million when the ping pong balls drop tonight at 9:59 PM local time.
