Friday 13th unlucky for MegaMillionsTuesday August 17th 2010
Whether you are a superstitious lottery player or not Friday 13th was unlucky for MegaMillions players last week as no one managed to match the winning numbers drawn to walk away with the bumper jackpot prize. Despite the myth that Friday 13th is an unlucky day, there is some good that has come out of the MegaMillions draw in that the jackpot rolls over again creating an even bigger jackpot to play for tonight. There is a staggering jackpot of $86 million up for grabs which could make this one of the most popular midweek lottery games.
MegaMillions players are of course no stranger to the large jackpots that are frequently offered by this game, but that is not to say that each and every draw that offers a lottery jackpot such as this is not just as exciting as any other. This, in fact is what all of you love and play for and the fact that the MegaMillions continues to keep offering the jackpots that you look for is the reason why it remains so popular with US lottery players.
Aside from the fact that no one won the big MegaMillions jackpot on Friday evening, two lucky players did manage to walk away $250,000 richer by matching five numbers. One of these lucky winners was from Pennsylvania and the other was from New York and this is not including the thousands of lower tier prizes that were paid out from this draw.
So if you fancy a chance of winning a massive $86 million jackpot, why not get a lotto ticket for the MegaMillions draw that is taking place tonight.
