Mega Millions Results and Lottery Winners
According to the Chicago Tribune on Nov. 30, the final Mega Millions results for Nov. 29, 2013, shows hundreds of thousands of lottery winners will be receiving checks for millions of dollars in prize money very soon. Unfortunately, no one won the $230 million jackpot last night though. That’s OK because the jackpot rolled over and is now worth an amazing $257 million for the next drawing on Tuesday, Dec. 3!
There was only one Match 5 + 0 Mega Millions winner from Kentucky Friday night. The Kentucky lottery winner matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number for $1 million. Had the winner also purchased the Megaplier option for an extra dollar, he or she may have won $4 million instead! Missing just one number kept this Kentucky Mega Millions winner from hitting the entire $230 million jackpot.
In addition to the $1 million Kentucky Mega Millions lottery winner, there were also forty-seven (47) Match 4 + 1 winners. The Mega Millions lottery winners matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, AND the gold Mega Ball number for the third-tier prize of $5,000 each. Three (3) of these winners spent an extra dollar on the Megaplier option, and had their prizes automatically multiplied to $20,000 instead of the standard prize of $5,000.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot in lottery history was $656 million (cash option of $474 million). It was split by three Mega Millions lottery winners on March 30, 2012. See the article Illinois, Kansas, Maryland lottery winners share Mega Millions winning numbers for more details.
