We won Mega Millions! Actually NOBODY won and the jackpot increases to an estimated $1.25 billion after no one beat the odds Tuesday night and won the massive lottery prize. The winning numbers drawn were: 8, 24, 30, 45 ,61, and the yellow ball: 12. Our Facebook Followers Ticket had the YELLOW BALL so one lucky winner Sherri Webster, gets $1 USD and shares it with me. But Sherri is also getting a TGS mug! No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot since April 18, allowing it to grow larger and larger. The $1.25 billion prize is now one of the largest in U.S. history. Tuesday night’s drawing for $1.1 billion was the 30th straight without a winner.
