RELEASE DATE: 3/13/2019
For the second time in less than two weeks, the Mega Millions jackpot has been won! A single ticket sold in Missouri matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night – the white balls 10, 12, 16, 49 and 57, plus the gold Mega Ball 18, to win the $50 million jackpot ($30.2 million cash).
It is the second Mega Millions jackpot ever won in Missouri; a $25 million prize was won in the state on July 31, 2015.
The jackpot had just been won on March 1; New Jersey resident Michael J. Weirsky has already claimed that $273 million prize. On January 1, a group of 23 co-workers in New York shared a $437 million jackpot.
For the next drawing on Friday, March 15, the jackpot resets to its starting value of $40 million ($24.1 million cash).
