April 11, 2014 – This week, another lucky player won a Mega Millions jackpot, and one state’s incredible, record-breaking jackpot run finally came to an end.
One winner also scored a LotteryHUB Rewards prize yesterday, kicking off the countdown to our next giveaway about three weeks from now.
Weekly Jackpot Update
Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is worth an estimated $20 million, with a cash value worth about $11 million.
Mega Millions’ top prize rolled over from its $15 million starting point Tuesday after a single ticket in California matched all six winning numbers last Friday night, winning a $30 million jackpot prize.
That win was the third in three weeks for Mega Millions, which means that if someone hits the jackpot tonight, there will have been a jackpot winner every week for the past month!
Powerball has also had a lot of winners recently, and tomorrow the jackpot will either fall back to its $40 million starting point, or it will roll over, passing $100 million for the first time since late February.
Saturday’s Powerball jackpot has an estimated value of $94 million and carries with it a cash value worth about $54 million.
Weekly Game News
Last night, a record-breaking jackpot finally fell. The Arkansas Lottery’s Natural State Jackpot, a game drawn six days out of the week, had reached a peak value of about $410,000 for last night’s drawing,
The Associated Press reported today that a single winner, Curtis O’Hare from Lonoke Arkansas, matched all five winning numbers in last night’s Natural State Jackpot to win the $410,000 prize, which he and his wife said they’ll invest.
The jackpot had rolled over 63 times in a row – since Jan. 14 – to reach its highest value yet. The $410,000 record bests the previous record, which was set at $295,000 in that Jan. 14 drawing, by more than $100,000.
