RELEASE DATE: 2/28/2015
A lucky ticket holder in New York has won the estimated $127 million ($82 million cash value) Mega Millions jackpot on February 27. A single ticket had all six numbers – the five white balls 7, 49, 53, 60 and 64, plus the Mega Ball 4. The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won January 16 – an Illinois resident recently claimed that $265 million jackpot as announced earlier this week.
Also in the February 27 drawing, a Match 5 winning ticket was sold in Wisconsin, the second $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in that state since the game was relaunched in October 2013.
Between January 16 and February 27, more than 16.9 million prize-winning Mega Millions tickets were sold at all levels as the jackpot grew. They include eight Match 5 winners of $1 million or more and more than 300 winners of $5,000 to $25,000.
