Mega Millions Lottery Jackpot Will Not Reach Record This Time
The mega Millions lottery jackpot has become very popular in 2008. The jackpot has grown to almost record numbers and has payed out big time for lucky winners.
Once again this week, the jackpot appeared headed towards one of those larger than life numbers. It had grown to $135 million. That is as far as it will get, however.
The latest drawing of the lottery was Tuesday night. The hopes were that nobody would match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball. Those hopes were not to be.
A winning ticket was sold in Detroit, Michigan. More specifically, the ticket was sold at a Wayne County Redford Township gas station.
"Congratulations to Michigan's newest millionaire. We look forward to presenting you with your check," said Scott Bowen, state lottery Commissioner.
The winning numbers from the Tuesday drawing were 4-17-26-46-56, and the Mega Ball number was 25. The winner now has the choice of being paid one lump sum, which would equate to $84.1 million after taxes, or receive an annual payment for 26 years.
