The Mega Millions lottery draw was conducted on Tuesday, September 6th and it had a jackpot of $191 million, which came with a cash option of $103.7 million.
Jackpot rolls over
The winning numbers for Tuesday night’s Mega Millions draw were 06, 17, 46, 59, and 68 with 2 being the Mega Ball and 4X was the Megaplier.
Unfortunately, no one was able to match all the numbers to win the top prize, which means that the jackpot will now roll over for the next draw.
The next Mega Millions drawing is scheduled to take place on Friday, September 9th and it will have a jackpot of $210 million. This prize will have a cash value of $114 million.
The Mega Millions lottery can be played in the District of Columbia, the US Virgin Islands and 45 states in the United States.
While there may not have been a winner for the grand prize in the Mega Millions draw on Tuesday night, there were a number of other winners.
First off, one player was able to become an instant millionaire, as they hit Match 5. This allowed the player from Iowa to walk away with a prize of $1 million.
Had they chosen to play the Megaplier, they would have been able to walk away with $4 million. Other than the instant millionaire, there were some other smaller wins on Tuesday night.
There were a total of 11 players who were able to hit the Match 4 as well as the gold Mega Ball, allowing them to win a sum of $10,000 each.
But, there were two of these players who opted to play the Megaplier, so hitting the Match 4 and the Mega Ball allowed them to win $40,000 each.
The other prizes in the Mega Millions draw on Tuesday night were between $2 and $2,000.
$2 million prize claimed
The Mega Millions draw on July 29th had seen a player from Iowa win a prize of $2 million and they finally came forward to claim it.
Ben Sanford had purchased six plays for the Mega Millions draw and he came forward to claim his winnings after a month.
As Sanford usually purchases his lottery tickets with his stepfather, Jason Stanford, he said they would split the winnings.
The winning ticket had been purchased in Bettendorf at the Big 10 Mart. The two men shared that they would be careful about spending their winnings.
However, Ben Sanford did admit that he may buy a car with his share.
