Mega Millions lottery tickets are a hot buy today. The double-M jackpot has leaped the $100 million mark. It happened after no one picked all of the winning numbers in last Tuesday’s draw. Here are those numbers: 2, 20, 28, 36, 45, and the Mega Ball 37. Three ticket holders in California matched all but the Mega number. Each of those tickets is worth $111, 608.
So don’t be surprised if a wave of lottery fever sweeps the Southland with long lines of hopefuls buying Mega Millions tickets today. The jackpot stands at $113 million. The next chance to win it all is in tonight’s draw at 8 p.m.
