All eyes were on the US Lottery games of Powerball and Mega Millions lotto games this weekend. Combined the games would offer up a total of nearly $400 million to play for over their Friday and Saturday draws. Friday saw Mega Millions hosting its draw for $270 million, followed by Saturday’s Powerball draw for $197 million.
The games would go a giant step further than just offer these prizes – but both Powerball, and Mega Millions especially were out to deliver in both draws. Friday saw an amazing Mega Millions draw as a total of two players, one from New York and the other from Florida, made off with a giant $1 million second place runner up win. The big news out of the weekend, however, would be the astounding single-ticket win of the first place Mega Millions prize. The lucky player is claimed to be from Illinois, and walked off with the life-changing sum due to their successful match of all 6 jackpot lotto numbers: 26, 32, 44, 45, 58 and the Mega Ball of 11. The illustrious prize had been the result of 20 consecutive rollovers for Mega Millions.
The Powerball draw followed on Saturday, and although usually mimics its sibling Mega Millions game, the draw produced no winners for its nearly $200 million jackpot prize. Not to be completely outdone by Mega Millions, US Powerball did go on to award nine second place winners, each from: California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, respectively. These nine take home an amazing win of $1 million each as consolation prizes for being a selection short of the winning lotto numbers of 15, 16, 23, 27, 36 and the Power Ball of 9. Without a lotto jackpot win, the Powerball first place prize is at $208 million ahead of tonight’s major lotto draw. Will the US Lottery game see fit to part with its top prize, or will it continue to tease and tantalize world fans as it rolls over for a 15th straight consecutive week. The last Powerball jackpot was won on November 29th, 2014, so the game is completely primed and ready for a giant lotto winner to step forward and claim the great winnings on offer.
