Louisiana Ticket Worth $30,000 in Mega Millions Drawing
The last time there was a big jackpot winner in the multi-state lottery game Mega Millions it was very cold outside. That last big winning ticket was sold for the February 16th drawing, you know, right around the time we were just coming out from under the big freeze of 2021. Since that drawing, no single ticket purchased has captured the Mega Millions top prize.
Now, if you're looking for life-changing riches via the lottery, you've still got hope because there still hasn't been a big money winner in the Mega Millions game. In fact, it's estimated that the top prize in the Mega Millions game on Friday will be about $430 million.
However, Louisiana Lottery officials did say there was a ticket sold in Louisiana for last night's game (05/11/21). That ticket is reported to be worth $30,000 this morning. Let's check your ticket and see if you're holding that big money winner.
Here are the numbers from the May 11, 2021, Mega Millions drawing:
07 08 20 36 39 MegaBall 22 Megaplier x 3
Lottery officials say the Louisiana winner was sold in Many at the Brookshire Brothers Store on Sant Antonio Avenue. That ticket matched four of the white-ball numbers, the Megaball and the ticket purchaser opted for the Megaplier option. This makes the ticket worth $30,000 according to the rules of the game.
Incidentally, the Powerball jackpot hasn't been won since March 27th and in tonight's drawing for that game, you could stand to win a cool $168 million if you match all the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize. Maybe if Lady Luck smiles in your direction you could use some of the proceeds from that winning ticket to purchase a new home, like maybe this one.
