#megamillions $4 million won in Texas; Megaplier is on a roll

June 30th, 2015

RELEASE DATE: 7/1/2015

A Match 5 winning ticket for the June 30 Mega Millions drawing was sold in Horizon City, Texas, near El Paso. Because the lucky ticket-holder added the optional Megaplier for an extra $1, instead of being worth $1 million, the ticket's value is $4 million after the 4x Megaplier was drawn. The ticket matched the five white balls in Tuesday's drawing – 11, 17, 34, 43 and 50 – just missing the gold Mega Ball of 15 for the jackpot.

In just the first six months of 2015, there have been eight multi-million Match 5 winners thanks to the Megaplier purchase, almost as many as all of 2014. An amazing six of those have won $5 million as the 5x Megaplier has been hot – two in Florida and one each in Arizona, Michigan, Oklahoma and Virginia.  

Meanwhile, the Mega Millions jackpot continues to roll, with an estimated $84 million prize ($50 million cash option) up for grabs in the July 3 drawing.
