Mega Millions draw last Friday night will be remembered for one of the most predictable winning lines in history! Fortunate combination of numbers produced several millionaires a few days ago, but the luckiest of the bunch was one ticket holder from Ohio. They correctly guessed all the digits and ended up with $143.000.000 in their pockets.
Winning line that enabled this amazing victory on May 4th consisted of the numbers 4, 5, 10, 12, 18 with the Mega Ball 21. They were all matched by one fortunate individual from Ohio, who purchased their golden ticket at the Fat Daddy’s Road Dog store in Moraine, outside of Dayton. Twelve players who missed the jackpot by the Mega Ball number also had a reason for celebration on Friday night. Six participants, including four from California and one each in New York and Ohio, ended up collecting a regular Match 5 prize worth $1.000.000. Another six players scooped $4.000.000 instead, thanks to adding the optional Megaplier to their tickets. They are residents of Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.
If you’re not impressed by this enormous number of big-prize winners, here’s a fun fact – this was actually the largest number of multi-million Match 5 tickets ever won in a single draw! There’s a pretty logical reason behind their incredible victory. The winning line consisted of the so-called “special date” numbers between 1 and 31, which are the most common digits used by avid players.
