After months of rolling over the elusive Mega Millions jackpot was finally won last night by just one lucky ticket holder. The Mega Millions jackpot has been drawing more and more attention to itself as the weeks have gone by and as the jackpot has got bigger and bigger. However last night the jackpot could hide no longer and one ticket holder from New York is now $162 million richer after matching the five main lottery numbers and also the Mega Ball.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been on the rise ever since November the 10th, which was the last time anybody managed to match all five main lottery numbers plus the Mega Ball. Back in November two lucky ticket holders shared the $77 million jackpot but last night a jackpot over twice as big was scooped by one solitary player. The lottery number for last nights’ Mega Millions draw were; 3, 33, 35, 39 and 45 with the Mega Ball being drawn as, unlucky for some, number 13.

Even though the $162 million Mega Millions jackpot was big, even by US lottery standards, it still falls short of the record Mega Millions payout which was $390 million and was won by two ticket holders in 2007. The $390 million record Mega Millions jackpot was won by a couple from New Jersey and a truck driver from Georgia winning each of them $195 million.

If you had tickets for last night’s $162 million Mega Millions draw check them carefully as you could be considerably better off right now. If you weren’t last night’s phenomenally lucky jackpot winner don’t despair as you can still buy tickets for tonight’s Powerball Lottery draw here at Online Lotto, which has a $106 million jackpot to be won.
