$355 Million Mega Millions Winner
At least two people are waking up to find themselves millions of dollars richer. Unfortunately it was nobody in the Capital Region or even New York State.
The holders of a ticket sold in Idaho and another in Washington state will be sharing Mega Millions’ $355 million jackpot from Tuesday night’s drawing, lottery officials said Wednesday.
The prize is the fourth-largest in U.S. history and the second-largest in Mega Millions’ history, said Arizona Lottery spokeswoman Cindy Esquer. The lottery’s prize of $390 million in March 2007 remains the nation’s richest on record.
The two winners from Tuesday will each get $177.5 million. Besides the jackpot, prizes range from $2 to $250,000.
The winning numbers were 4, 8, 15, 25 and 47, with 42 being the “Mega ball” number.
