Search for a MegaMillions winner continuesWednesday May 18th 2011
The search for a MegaMillions winner continues today after a single ticket holder scooped the $27 million jackpot from the draw that took place on Friday 13th May. The winner has not yet come forward, but this is not unusual for a lottery win of this kind. More often than not, players would choose to get themselves good legal representation before claiming a lottery win of this size and many are hopeful that this is the only reason for the delay.
The winning MegaMillions ticket was purchased from Circle K, Kalamazoo, Michigan and the winning numbers were 3, 33, 39, 47, 53 and the Mega Ball was 9. So if you purchased a ticket from this store for the MegaMillions draw on Friday, it would be a good idea to check your lottery ticket, if you haven’t already done so, to be sure you are not sitting on the MegaMillions winning ticket.
This amazing win now means that the MegaMillions returned to base offering a jackpot of $12 million for the draw last night. However, with a monster $97 million jackpot up for grabs, we are likely to see all eyes turn to the other US multi state lottery game PowerBall, at least until a winner is produced.
MegaMillions is available to play in 43 states/jurisdictions in the US, so even those who do not live in states offering MegaMillions, should be able to get lotto tickets for the draw relatively easily. Of course, the fact that you can now purchase tickets online means that MegaMillions is available to many more people all over the world.
