The Tuesday night Mega Millions Lottery draw had a $26 million jackpot to be won, and won it was. A Mega Millions jackpot winner from New York scooped the multi-million dollar jackpot to themselves after matching all five main lottery numbers plus the Mega Ball.

This was the first time that the Mega Millions jackpot had been won since the 11th of June when one lucky ticket holder from Michigan won the $36 million jackpot. This made last night’s Mega Millions jackpot a double rollover jackpot, which saw many players heading to lottery stores or their PC’s to buy extra online lotto tickets for the juicy jackpot.

Last night’s winning Mega Millions Lottery numbers are; 12, 17, 21, 23 and 30 with the Mega Ball being drawn as 24. Besides the jackpot winner, there were also 11 players who matched five main lottery numbers without matching the Mega Ball to take home $250,000 each, 37 players who matched four main lottery numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $10,000 each plus many other lower tier prizes.
