Dec. 28, 2015 — Happy Monday lottery players! We hope everyone had a great holiday! Both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots rolled over last weekend, creating quite the jackpot for Powerball and making the Mega Millions jackpot even more attractive.
No one was able to match all six numbers for Powerball’s grand prize, which bumped the jackpot up to an incredible $300 million dollars More than a million Powerball players took home prizes, together winning a total of about $6.2 million in non-jackpot prize money.
Mega Millions’ top prize continued growing after Friday’s drawing failed to produce a jackpot winner. The new jackpot has an estimated annuity value of $117 million, and carries with it a $71 million cash option.
While there were no jackpot winners, lots of players were lucky enough to take home non-jackpot prizes this weekend. There were a little more than a million more players who were able to match a winning combination of numbers.
Congratulations to all of this weekend’s winners. Powerball and Mega Millions continue this week, starting Tuesday (December 29, 2015) with Mega Millions. Remember – you can’t win if you don’t play!
