You're probably wondering, did anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot on August 2, 2013? The Mega Millions winning lottery numbers are 8, 21, 23, 25, 39, the Mega Ball number is 4, and the Megaplier is X 2, announced Florida Lottery officials on Friday, August 2. While there were hundreds of thousands of lottery winners Friday night, no one won was lucky enough to win the $13 million jackpot. The good news is the jackpot rolled over and is now worth an estimated $20 million!
Mega Millions.com reports there were five (5) Match 5 + 1 winners on August 2. Four of the five lottery winners purchased their lucky Mega Millions winning tickets in Arizona, Kentucky, New Jersey and Ohio, and will be receiving checks for $250,000—before taxes of course! Additionally, one (1) California Lottery winner also won a second-tier prize but will receive a check for $358,414 instead of the standard prize of $250,000.
All second-tier lottery winners matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, but not the gold Mega Ball number for the August 2 drawing. These Mega Millions winners were just one number away from the $13 million jackpot. However, Megaplier ticket holders may see their prize winnings instantly jump to $1 million instead of the standard $250,000 prize amount!
There are also twenty-four (23) Match 4 + 1 winners on Friday night that will receive $10,000 each. Each third-tier lottery winner matched four out of five white Mega Millions winning numbers, AND the gold Mega Ball number. Megaplier winners may have their prize winnings multiplied by the Megaplier of 2 to $20,000 instead of the standard $10,000 amount.
