Mega Millions Jackpot Rolls to $353 MillionWednesday March 12th 2014
The Mega Millions jackpot is now worth a huge $353 million after ticket holders failed to match the winning numbers in last night’s draw.
The Mega Millions numbers drawn last night were 9, 14, 56, 57 and 69 with the Mega Ball 10. One ticket holder from Texas and another from Washington both matched all five main numbers to win $1 million each. Neither winner selected the Megaplier option but if they had, their win would have increased to $4 million as the Megaplier number drawn last night was 4.
Washington lottery officials have yet to confirm where the winning ticket was purchased but Texas lottery officials have confirmed the winning Match 5 ticket from their state was purchased from the 7-Eleven store on Golden Triangle Blvd, Fort Worth.
Other winners in last night’s draw included 77 players who matched four main numbers and the Mega Ball to win $5,000 each and 1,056 players who matched four main numbers to win $500 each.
As this is the largest the Mega Millions jackpot seen since the colossal $648 million jackpot was won in December 2013, high ticket sales for Friday’s draw are a strong possibility. With the jackpot surpassing the $350 million mark, it will be interesting to see if any players can hit the jackpot in Friday’s draw or if it will continue to roll over.
Mega Millions tickets can be purchased online through the Buy Tickets page or from an authorized retailer in any of the participating states.
