The Mega Millions Lottery has been won. Mega Millions has been generating hysteria in the United States and with online ticket purchasers with a jackpot of $640 million.
Early reports show that there is at least one winning ticket that was bought in Maryland. According to reports their were massive queues snaking down blocks to buy these lottery tickets. $1.5 billion has been spent on buying Mega Million lottery tickets.
The winning numbers on the lottery ticket are : 2, 4, 23, 38, 46 and the mega ball is : 23
The winner will walk away with half a billion dollars if there is a single ticket win. The main difference between the Mega Millions Lottery and the Euro Million Lottery is that EuroMillions is a lump sum lottery since Mega Millions is an installment lottery. The winner of Mega Millions can choose to take a lump sum but then has to accept a lesser amount.
In this case the amount paid out on a lump sum win of the Mega Millions lottery would be $460.8 million it has to be said larger than the biggest Euro Million jackpot.
We look forward to the circus surrounding the announcement of the winner or winners of this Mega Million Jackpot.
