July is proving to be a really fortunate month for Mega Millions enthusiasts all over the US – only during this week the popular game produced three jackpot winners in Washington, Georgia and Virginia. Follow in their footsteps on Tuesday night – play to become $15.000.000 richer!
Two winning tickets from Georgia and Virginia shared a $15.000.000 windfall on July 22nd after matching the numbers 8, 24, 25, 26 and 30, plus the Mega Ball 7. An even larger prize was won three days before it, when one lucky punter from Washington scooped $25.000.000 by correctly guessing the winning combination 3, 34, 54, 65 and 66 with the Mega Ball 4. It’s currently the sixth time in the game’s history that the top prize has been won in back-to-back draws, and the first time it happened since May 2010.
The $15.000.000 cash reward won on July 22nd is also the fifth Mega Millions jackpot netted this year. The largest windfall of 2016 was won back on July 8th by one Cambridge City resident who is yet to come forward and claim their magnificent $536.000.000 pay-out. The golden ticket that transformed someone into the third biggest Mega-millionaire of all times was sold at the Speedway gas station at State Road 1, which received a $100.000 bonus for selling it.
Unlike Mega Millions, Powerball failed to produce a jackpot winner last night when the numbers 5, 7, 23, 35 and 39 with the Power Ball 11 were drawn. There were 1.430.000 participants who snatched cash rewards of smaller value, taking home almost $9.975.000 in non-jackpot prizes, but none of them managed to match the five main numbers. Try succeeding where they’ve failed on Wednesday night – $422.000.000 is yours to take!
