Mega Millions Jackpot Grows to Almost $300 Million
Once again this week’s Mega Millions drawings failed to produce a winner which means that the next jackpot has grown to an estimated $291 million. The numbers drawn were 9, 12, 41, 44, 59 with Gold Mega Ball 3 and Megaplier 3.Lottery officials said that the draw used the new matrix for Mega Millions. The new matrix features more numbers for Match 5 and fewer Mega numbers.
The changes give players the chance to win more prizes and are also designed to increase the size of the jackpots.
According to the Mega Millions website, just one ticket in the multi-state lottery game matched 5 numbers to claim a prize of $1 million. The ticket was purchased in Missouri but it is not known who the lucky winner was.
Mega Millions draws take place every Tuesday and Friday. The next draw will take place on December 6th and with so much money up for grabs it is sure to receive a lot of attention.
For those outside of the US it is still possible to play the Mega Millions. There are a number of websites where you can purchase tickets regardless of where you are in the world.
