It’s Mega Millions drawing day again. This Friday Feb. 4 drawing has a $22 million jackpot up for grabs. The lump sum cash option for a lucky winner would gross them $15 million before taxes.
In Tuesday’s drawing, a ticket sold in CT matched the first five white balls. With the 4x Megaplier that was drawn, that ticket won a prize of $4 million. To have a prize multiplied, players pay an extra $1 for the Megaplier option when buying their ticket.
Check the Mega Millions winning numbers here at 11:00 p.m. after the drawing.
Winning numbers: 7 – 16 – 34 – 44 – 61
Mega Ball: 24
While the prize wasn’t as large this time, Bucks County had another jackpot winner on PA Lottery’s Cash 5 With Quick Cash game on Feb 2. Ticket Town in Morrisville sold the winning ticket, which will pay out $200,000 to the lucky winner. The store will receive a $500 bonus for selling the winning ticket.
In a two-week period, there have now been four major wins out of Bucks County. A recent winner of the same game took home a $1.85 million jackpot on Jan. 27. A few days earlier on Jan. 24, a Wawa store in Bensalem sold the first ever Top Prize-winning $5 Million Money Maker Scratch-Off.
Last but not least, a Powerball ticket sold in Bucks County hit a $2 million payday in the Jan. 20 drawing. Without the Power Play option added to the ticket, the prize would have been $1 million.
Of course, all PA counties get their fair share of winners at various levels. The PA Lottery paid out $231,726,708 in prizes in January across all counties. Scratch-Off winners are listed on the Winners section of PALottery.com
