Two $1 million winners from the first draw of the ALL-NEW Mega Millions!
The October 22 Mega Millions draw produced two $1 million winning tickets, one each in Florida and Georgia. And because the Megaplier was 5x, had either ticket included the extra purchase of the Megaplier for just $1, those tickets would have won a cool $5 million. The Megaplier option is available in most Mega Millions states.
With a 5x Megaplier, everyone purchasing the extra option for $1 received five times their normal winnings, from $25,000 down to $5. Note that the 5x Megaplier has the best chance of being drawn of any of the Megaplier numbers (from 2x through 5x).
Improvements to Mega Millions began with the October 22 draw, and include bigger jackpots, a $1 million second tier prize, and better overall odds of winning any prize.
