While there wasn’t a grand prize winner from the Tuesday night pull, one person managed to become an instant millionaire.
A player from Pennsylvania hit the Match 5 plus the Megaplier and won $3 million. Other ticket holders managed to score smaller monetary prizes from the night.
There were 13 players that hit the Match 4 plus gold Mega Ball who won $10,000 each. Meanwhile, there were only two players who hit the Match 4 plus gold Mega Ball with the 3X Megaplier, winning $30,000 apiece. The rest of the players from the night won prizes ranging from $2 to $1,500.
The latest drawing comes after a player from Illinois won the second latest jackpot in Mega Millions history. While many are eager to know the identity of the lucky person who won $1.337 billion, they may never get an answer.
In Illinois, lottery players who win a prize over $250,000 can request to keep their name and hometown confidential.
Many states don’t allow winners to remain anonymous to assure the public that the lottery prize went to a real person. Although the option isn’t offered in certain states, some have begun to adopt the practice.
“It’s been actually a little trend in the industry over the past, every four or five years, to look at doing anonymity — for legislatures to go in and change the way the lotteries operate and put in the anonymity clauses,” Gregg Edgar, executive director of the Arizona Lottery, told NPR.
Mega Millions jackpot winners can receive their grand prize winnings through a one-time lump sum payment or an annuity.
Those who opt for the annuity receive one immediate payment, followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year.
Mega Millions can be played in 45 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
