Don’t look now, but there is another HUGE jackpot building in the Mega Millions game.
There was no jackpot winner in the April 14 game so the big prize shoots up to $109 million on April 17.
The winning numbers are 4,11,22,48,50 and the Mega number is 42.
5 tickets hit 5 of 5, but not the Mega ball.
Because of how California divides up their sales, the match five winner in California has a ticket worth $746,368.
The other tickets are each worth $250,000. They were bought in Illinois, New York and Ohio (two tickets).
GAMES WE PLAY:
Poweball offers up a $25 million jackpot on April 15 (tax day).
The April 17 Mega Millions jackpot is $109 million.
The April 17 Euro Millions jackpot is 58 million Euros, or about $76 million, U.S.
I want to thank everyone who listened to me this morning on the WQKX FM radio show here in Pennsylvania. My particular thanks to Drew and Ali, the hosts. It is always fun talking about the lottery.
They also let me plug my book, LOTTERY: A GUIDE TO AMERICAN LOTTERIES (McAllister Books)…which is available by clicking on the cover to your right…or by going to amazon.com or barnes and noble bookseller and ordering it.
Thanks again, Drew and Ali.
