Lottery Post and USA Mega will update the jackpot tallies displayed if such an increase occurs.In Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, there was no jackpot winner, but 9 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $1,000,000 prize: 1 from California, 2 from Florida, 1 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Missouri, 1 from New Jersey, 1 from Texas, and 1 from Washington.One of the second-prize winners from Florida purchased their ticket with the Megaplier option for an extra $1 per play, increasing their prize to $2 million because the Megaplier number drawn was 2.The Megaplier option is not available in California, because the fixed nature of the prize increase offered with the Megaplier is not compatible with California’s pari-mutuel payouts. By law, California awards all lottery prizes on a pari-mutuel basis, meaning the prizes will change each drawing based on the number of tickets sold and the number of tickets that won at each prize level.Also, a total of 116 tickets matched four of the first five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win a $10,000 prize. Of those tickets, 20 were purchased with the Megaplier option, increasing the prize to $20,000, and 15 were sold in California, where the prize awarded this drawing is $8,558.The Mega Millions winning numbers for Tuesday, January 12, 2021, were 12, 14, 26, 28, and 33, with Mega Ball number 9. The Megaplier number was 2.The complete payout information and official drawing video for Tuesday’s drawing can be found at USA Mega’s Mega Millions Drawing Information page.Following the Tuesday drawing, the Mega Millions annuity jackpot estimate was raised $125 million from its previous amount of $625 million. The cash value was raised by $91.8 million from its previous amount of $458.8 million.Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each. For an extra $1 per ticket players can purchase the Megaplier option, which multiplies any non-jackpot won by up to 5 times, depending on the Megaplier number drawn that evening.Mega Millions is currently offered for sale in 45 states, plus Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 pm Eastern Time.To find the nearest lottery retailer to buy your tickets, head over to the Lottery Places website to download the free app on your iOS or Android phone or Windows computer. Lottery Places is the only app on the market that will locate lottery retailers in every state and jurisdiction throughout the United States.Some states offer direct online sales too.  Michigan residents can bypass the store completely and buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online.  Texas residents can buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online too.  Oregon residents have options to buy Mega Millions tickets and Powerball tickets online as well.  Note that some of these links will only work properly for residents of the states mentioned.Players outside the USA can use a reputable butler service to buy their Mega Millions tickets.Mega Millions lottery results are published within minutes of the drawing at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).  The USA Mega Web site provides lottery players in-depth information about the United States’s two biggest multi-state lottery games, Mega Millions and Mega Millions.Top 25 United States lottery jackpots of all timeFriday’s Mega Millions jackpot currently stands as the 5th-largest lottery jackpot of all time in the United States, and the 2nd-largest Mega Millions jackpot ever.  Brisk sales will likely push the jackpot estimate higher by draw time.If nobody wins Tuesday, it’s anyone’s guess how high it will go.Powerball: $1.5864 billion, Jan. 13, 2016 (19 rollovers, starting at $40 million) – California, Florida,

Last February the guy was talking about a $500 million price tag. Maybe by summer it will be available for 250.Besides, even with a bump to 800 million, no state income tax, and top federal rates staying at 37% for 2021 you wouldn’t take home more than $370 million. Once you factor in closing costs and ongoing maintenance either you couldn’t afford it or your standard of living wouldn’t be significantly better than it is now. .
