Two New Millionaires In Florida But No Jackpot Winner, Mega Millions Grows To 1.35 Billion
Feeling lucky? The next Mega Millions drawing is this Friday the 13th. And it’s a biggie. One billion three hundred fifty million. 16 people got 5 numbers right but missed the gold Mega Ball, including 2 winners here in Florida. Check your tickets.
The numbers for the January 10th,2023 drawing were 7, 13, 14, 15, and 18. The Mega Ball was 9.
Two people in Florida are now millionaires. One scored a milly, the person who chose Megaplier gets 3 million.
So it grows. According to the Ohio Lottery, ” a gigantic prize of $1.35 billion ($707.9 million cash) is estimated for Friday, January 13. If won at that amount, it would be the second largest jackpot in Mega Millions history!”
This Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since October 14th, when someone in Fort Myers Florida shared the 502 million jackpot with someone in California. I remember that drawing because it was just a couple of weeks after Hurricane Ian. They bought the ticket at a 7-11. We don’t yet know the name of the person in Fort Myers who won. The lottery releases the name of the winner 90 days after they claim their prize which they did, about 2 months ago.
In addition, what about drawings on Friday the 13th? The lottery keeps stats on that, too. “Michigan has been particularly lucky with Mega Millions jackpots on Friday the 13th, winning four of them (June 2008, May 2011, June 2014 and October 2017). That 2017 jackpot was shared with a winner in Rhode Island. Other jackpots on Friday the 13th have been won in New York (March 2009) and Ohio (November 2015). None of them, however, came close in size to the estimated $1.35 billion up for grabs later this week.”
