Mega Millions winning numbers for Tuesday, May 28
The Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots are starting to heat up as summer approaches!
Here are the Mega Millions numbers for Tuesday, May 28:
9 – 21 – 34 – 42 – 50 and Megaball: 21
Megaplier was 2x
The Mega Millions jackpot was $418 million with a $263.3 million cash option, according to the Mega Millions website.
Five tickets sold matched all five white balls to take home at least $1 million; two of those tickets are worth $2 million because the lottery player had the Megaplier option.
One of the $1 million tickets was sold at The Mart on Shrewsbury Avenue in Tinton Falls.
Two other $1 million tickets were sold in Michigan and California. Two tickets sold in Virginia and West Virginia had the Megaplier option making them worth $2 million.
The Mega Millions jackpot was last won on March 12 in Missouri.
Meanwhile, the Powerball jackpot is estimated at $325 million for Wednesday night’s drawing. The cash value for the drawing is $205.2 million, according to the Powerball website.
Unfortunately, anyone hoping to stay under the radar with future winnings is out of luck. In New Jersey, winners are required to be identified. But maybe not for long after a bill was introduced in the NJ State Legislature to allow winners to remain anonymous.
If you’re dreaming of winning the Mega Millions jackpot, you should probably call a lawyer and be ready to tell lots of people no because life is about to get a little hectic.
