Two tickets, bought in San Gabriel, California, and the Bronx, New York, hit the $333 million Aug. 28 Mega Millions jackpot, so they each will get $166.5 million. Not bad for a $1 ticket.
We’ll let you know who won as soon as they come forward to get their money.
The winning numbers are 1,17,31,37, 54 and Mega ball 31.
34 tickets hit five numbers, but missed the Mega ball.
The 6 California winners will each get $220,778.
The other 28 will each get $250,000. Those tickets were bought in Georgia (3), Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan (2), New Jersey (6), New York (7), Ohio (2), Texas (4) and Washington.
210 tickets hit 4 of 5 and the Mega ball.
22 tickets hit 4 of 5 and Mega ball in California. Those tickets are worth $16,421.
All the other 4 of 5 plus Mega ball are worth $10,000 each.
The next Mega Millions draw is Sept. 1 and the jackpot is set back to $12 million.
GAMES WE PLAY:
The Powerball jackpot on Aug. 29 is $33 million.
The Euro Millions jackpot on Sept. 4 is 28 million euros (about $44 million, U.S.), since no one won the Aug. 28 game.
GAMES WE WISH WE COULD PLAY, but we don’t live in that state:
The largest jackpot currently ongoing in the world is in Texas. The Aug. 29 Lotto Texas game offers up a $43 million jackpot.
Good luck, players around the world.
And I hope someone in Texas lassos that jackpot.
