August 19, 2015 – The Mega Millions jackpot grew after Tuesday night. The jackpot is now an estimated $47 million and carries with it an $29 million cash option.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were 2, 7, 33, 39, 53 and the Mega Ball was 9. The Megaplier was 3x, so players who added the optional multiplier to their tickets and won will receive three times the normal value of their prize!
While there was no jackpot winner, there was one very lucky player from Massachusetts who walked away a millionaire after last night’s drawing! There were also 24 third prize winners who each earned $5,000 in prize money. Out of these 24 winners, four of them bought the Megaplier option which tripled their prize amount to $15,000!
With just over 1 million winners from last night’s Mega Millions drawing, the total prize money rewarded to players was well over 2 million!
The next drawing for the estimated $47 million annuity jackpot will be held Friday night, so there’s still plenty of time to get in on the action! Just be sure to pick up your ticket before sales close Friday night.
