Mega Millions / Powerball

By Todd Northrop

Two multi-state lottery games gave up millions in their latest drawings as lucky ticketholders snagged the grand prize jackpots.

The first big winner matched all six numbers drawn for the estimated $133 million Mega Millions jackpot Friday night. The winning Quick Pick ticket was purchased at a BP gas station located at 1000 East Southline Road in Tuscola.

The winning Mega Millions numbers were: 13, 21, 28, 34, and 40, with Mega Ball number 15. The Megaplier was 3.

The cash value of the Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $89 million.

In addition to the winner's prize, the retailer will receive a bonus of $500,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The Illinois Lottery is urging this winner to immediately sign the back of their ticket and keep it in a safe place until they can visit on the lottery's prize centers in Chicago, Des Plaines, Rockford, Springfield or Fairview Heights.

Winners in Illinois have one year from the original drawing date to claim their prize.

The second big winner matched all six numbers drawn for a $246.8 million Powerball jackpot Saturday night. The jackpot-winning ticket was sold at Publix Super Market #1363, located at 104 Town Blvd. in Atlanta.

The winning Powerball numbers were 9, 19, 51, 55, and 62, with Powerball number 14. The Power Play was 4.

The cash value of the jackpot is an estimated $165 million.

Winners in Georgia have 180 days from the date of the drawing to claim their prize and can do so at the Georgia Lottery offices. They're open from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Both lottery jackpots are now reset for this week's drawings. Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot is $15 million and Wednesday's Powerball jackpot is $40 million.
