The nine Match 5 winners won $1 million while the one Match 5 Megaplier winner won $3 million.
The high jackpot has drawn a lot of attention from lottery players across the county, encouraging many to buy tickets and have a chance at winning it. The jackpot grew from around $810 million to about $830 million in just one day from people purchasing tickets on Tuesday.
Even Raising Canes CEO and founder, Todd Graves, bought 50K tickets for $100,000 for a chance to win Tuesday’s jackpot, while also promising to share the winnings with his 50K employees.
There is still a chance to win if you do not match all of the numbers. Players have the chance to win between $2 to $10,000 if they can match some of the numbers on their board. Always scan your ticket on your state’s lottery app or take it to a local lottery-participating gas station to check if you won anything.
The next drawing will be on Friday, July 29, at 11 p.m. ET. It can be watched from its recorded live stream on Youtube.
