RELEASE DATE: 4/1/2012
With sales from all 44 Mega Millions lotteries calculated and totaled, the final jackpot amount for the Friday, March 30 drawing came to $656 million dollars. That record-shattering amount was the result of unprecedented sales in all jurisdictions where Mega Millions is played.
The jackpot will be split by three tickets that matched all six numbers: 2-4-23-38-46 and the Mega Ball 23. Those tickets were bought in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland.
