Mega Millions Winners March 6, 2012
Unfortunately, for all the players who were hoping to strike it rich last night, there were no Mega Millions jackpot winners to take home the $127,000,000 prize. Don't spend your time crying over a few lost tickets with the wrong lottery numbers as the next Mega Millions jackpot is now up to a whopping $148,000,000!
Although there were no jackpot winner in Tuesday's drawing, there were seven (7) Match 5 + 0 winners for $250,000 each. The lottery winners matched five out of six Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the Mega Ball number for the second-tier prize.
The winners purchased their lucky lottery tickets from the California Lottery, Georgia Lottery, Illinois Lottery, Pennsylvania Lottery, Washington Lottery, and two (2) winning tickets from the Michigan Lottery. Any winners also holding Megaplier tickets for this wager will see their prize winnings automatically increased to $1,000,000! Not a bad return for a $2 investment!
There were also forty-six (46) Match 4 + 1 winners for $10,000 each. The Megaplier number for March 6th was X 4, so anyone that has a Megaplier ticket for this winning wager will be thrilled when their prize winnings are multiplied by 4 for $40,000 instead. That's worth the extra dollar! Can you imagine missing out on an extra $30,000 because you didn't want to spend one dollar? Many players don't buy Megaplier tickets, but they wish they had when all their winning lottery numbers come up!
