Texas Ticket Wins Mega Millions Jackpot

Jun 29, 14 Texas Ticket Wins Mega Millions Jackpot

June 29, 2014 – One lucky ticket sold in Texas matched all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing to win the jackpot.  Their prize has an estimated value of $33 million, and the cash option is worth about $19 million.

The winning numbers in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing were 15, 29, 31, 46, 64 and the Mega Ball was 10.  The Megaplier drawn was 3x, so players who added the optional multiplier to their tickets and won a prize will receive three times the normal prize amount.

Friday’s jackpot winner was the only new millionaire made in the drawing; no tickets matched only the first five white numbers, a five-out-of-six winning combination worth $1 million.

There were 16 winners whose tickets matched four of the white numbers and the Mega Ball to win third prizes Friday.  Two of those winners added the Megaplier option to their tickets and will receive $15,000 prizes, while the other 14 won Mega Millions’ normal $5,000 third prize.

Along with these top winners there were more than a million others who won a prize Friday night.  Non-jackpot winners together won more than $2.2 million  in prizes.

There’s always a lot to be won playing Mega Millions – even if the jackpot is at its $15 million starting point, like it will be Tuesday night.  Along with the $15 million annuity and $8 million cash value, about a million players win in each Mega Millions drawing.

Be sure to pick up your tickets before sales close ahead of Tuesday’s drawing; don’t miss your chance to join be a winner.  For a state-by-state list of Mega Millions sales cutoff times, read this post.
