Several Mega Millions players who bought tickets in California for last night’s draw — are really glad they did. Today they’re probably dancing around singing the line, “money, money, money, money, mon-ey,” from that O’Jays’ hit, “For the Love of Money” (1973).
The winner of the $51 million jackpot bought the lucky ticket at Stuarts Oak Street Mobil, 2 Oak Street in Bakersfield. That ticket has all of the winning numbers: 1, 16, 29, 36, 50, and the Mega Ball 16.
Another ticket purchased in San Francisco had all the numbers right, except the Mega Ball. That ticket is worth $220,311. Two tickets bought in the Golden State had four of the winning numbers and the Mega Ball. Each of those tickets can be cashed in for $30,042. Hey, is one of those tickets yours?
Next, Mega Millions draw is this Friday, May 6, at 8 p.m. The jackpot — at least $12 million.
