Mega Millions Results Revealed – Jackpot Estimated $565 Million
The multi-state lottery game Mega Millions has been pretty good to Louisiana's lottery players in recent history. In fact, last Friday's Mega Millions drawing (December 23) produced a $10,000 winning ticket in Louisiana.
Last night players from across the Mega Millions footprint were hoping for a post-Christmas miracle or the chance to begin the new year with the addition of over half a billion dollars to their net worth.
That's how the drawing shook out. If you didn't get to see the video the numbers drawn were:
09 13 36 59 61 Mega Ball 11 Megaplier x2
The game's official website confirmed those numbers and they also confirmed no single ticket sold across the nation matched the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize. That top prize was estimated to be $565,000,000 when the balls dropped last night.
While Mega Millions did not pay out the jackpot they did payout some big winning tickets. In fact, the game's website says that million-dollar Match 5 tickets were sold in Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. There were also two one-million dollar winners sold in California.
Meanwhile, the Louisiana Lottery is reporting that the largest payout in The Boot was $1,000. That prize was earned by two tickets sold in the state, another 11 tickets earned prizes of $500. There were seven Louisiana-sold tickets that are now valued at $400 and 15 other tickets sold in Louisiana now have a cash prize of $200 attached to them.
The next Mega Millions drawing will come on Friday night at 10 pm. The estimated top prize will be $640 million for those who would choose the annuity option or for those who'd like the lump sum payment the cash option is listed at $328.3 million.
Tonight's Powerball jackpot is estimated to be $215 million. That multi-state lottery game has not had a jackpot winner since November 19th. There are also two other draw games featured by the Louisiana Lottery that have pretty sizable payouts this evening. The Lotto jackpot is just over $3 million and the Easy 5 game's jackpot is now over $150,000.
Remember if you choose to play any of these lottery games only spend what you can afford to lose. If you or someone you know is having an issue with gambling, call 1-877-770-STOP (7867) for assistance.
