US Mega Millions Jackpot Surpasses US$100 Million Mark

Excitement is building for tonight’s US Mega Millions draw as there is a jackpot worth US$105 million to play for. The jackpot is the result of the previous 12 draws passing without a top tier winner and is only the second time this year that the Mega Millions jackpot has surpassed the US$100 million mark.

The last time there was a Mega Millions jackpot winner was on 25th March when one ticket holder from New York matched all five main numbers (19, 26, 51, 57, 73) and the Mega Ball (15) to win the jackpot worth US$20 million. Lottery officials confirmed shortly after the draw that the winning ticket was purchased from the Gascon Inc store on Middle County Road in Suffolk but, seven weeks after the draw, the winner still hasn’t come forward to claim their prize. With a US$20 million jackpot outstanding, we urge players to check their tickets carefully from the Mega Millions draw on 25th March to see if they are the missing US$20 million winner.

One ticket holder from Florida and another from Massachusetts came close to winning the jackpot in Tuesday’s draw when they both matched all five main numbers but missed out on the Mega Ball. The two players secured prizes of US$1 million for matching all five main numbers but if they had chosen to include the Megaplier, their win would have increased to US$3 million as the Megaplier number drawn was 3.
