Mega Millions jackpot surges to $115 million, two tickets bought in CA each worth more than half-a-million bucks

The Mega Millions jackpot is on a money roll. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger.  Once again, no ticket in yesterday’s draw held all of the winning numbers: 4, 13, 20, 29, 48, and Mega Ball 36. So the jackpot has ballooned to $115 million!! Also, a couple of consolation prizes from Friday’s Mega Millions draw are large enough to pay-off some lingering debt or provide a nice retirement or beef-up that sagging investment portfolio. Two tickets, bought in the Golden State, have all but the Mega Ball —... Read More →

Mega Millions jackpot hits $100 million, El Monte 7-11 sells two winning SuperLotto Plus tickets

You’ve heard before, but I gotta say it again  — the Mega Millions jackpot has rolled over after no one picked all of the winning numbers.  Tuesday’s draw numbers were 11, 19, 40, 43, 44, and the Mega Ball 33.

Mega Millions jackpot hovering at $75 million

That Mega Millions jackpot is still up for grabs for a lucky player or players with the winning numbers.

The next drawing is Friday, August 13. Hmm, usually retailers do a bang-up business in lottery ticket sales on the day of the drawing when the jackpot gets this hefty.

Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $53 million

More greenbacks got stuffed into the Mega Millions jackpot, after no one matched all of the winning numbers in Tuesday’s drawing.  The lucky numbers were 4, 13, 20, 22, 56, and the Mega Ball 32. However, there’s still a ticket from last night’s game that’s got a lot of dollar signs hanging on it. One ticket sold at the Lorena Market, 3360 East Olympic Boulevard in Los Angeles, matched all but the Mega Ball. That ticket is worth $197, 117. Meanwhile, the jackpot has grown to $53 million.
