The Tuesday Mega Millions results are in! Unfortunately, no one matched all six Mega Millions winning numbers to win the $21,000,000 jackpot. The August 30th Mega Millions numbers are 2, 22, 25, 28, 50, the Mega Ball is 18, and the Megaplier is X 4.
The good news is the next Mega Millions drawing on Friday, September 2nd, will be worth an estimated $29,000,000! And who couldn’t use that chunk of change in their bank account?
Mega Millions Winners
Just because no one won the BIG one, doesn’t mean there wasn’t a lot of moo-la given away last night. Three (3) Match 5 + 0 winners matched the first five Mega Millions numbers, but not the Mega Ball. The normal payout for a second-tier prize is $250,000. However, if the lottery winners spent an extra dollar for the Megaplier option, the $250,000 prize will automatically jump to $1,000,000. The winning tickets were purchased in California, Colorado, and Minnesota.
The Wednesday, August 30, 2011 Powerball drawing also produced twenty-five (25) third-tier Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. Since the Megaplier number was 4, any Megaplier tickets will be worth $40,000! In addition to all the high-tier prizes, there were also 411,596 smaller prizes worth $2 to $150.
Were you one of the lucky ones? Did you win $250,000, or even $10,000? And if you did, how would you spend your money? Would you buy a new car, or use it as a down payment on a house?
