#megamillions Jackpot to $400 million; Match 5 wins include three $3 million winners

March 15th, 2014

RELEASE DATE: 3/15/2014

The Mega Millions jackpot continues to roll and will be an estimated $400 million for Tuesday, March 18 ($223 million cash option). At that level, it would be the third highest jackpot in the game's history, behind only the record $656 million prize on March 30, 2012, and the $648 million won last December 17. The numbers drawn on March 14 were 7, 20, 40, 54 and 69, with a Mega Ball of 12.

                                               

In the March 14 Mega Millions drawing, there were five Match 5 winning tickets – three of which included the optional Megaplier for an extra $1. With a 3x Megaplier drawn, tickets sold in Arkansas, Florida and Virginia are worth $3 million each. The remaining two Match 5 winners were both sold in Ohio and are worth $1 million each.

That brings to an even 100 the number of Match 5 winners since Mega Millions was relaunched last October. Seven of those included the optional Megaplier – there have been two $5 million winners, one $4 million winner and four $3 million winners.

The estimated $400 million jackpot will be the sixth largest lotto jackpot ever offered in the United States:
