(WGGB) – Two lucky ticket holders beat the 175 million to one odds last night, matching all six numbers in last night’s MegaMillions drawing. One of those tickets was sold in New Jersey, while the other was sold in Virginia. Those winners will split the $190 million jackpot.
Seventeen people across 10 states – including New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Colorado, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin – matched five numbers. They will each receive a $250,000 prize.
The MegaMillions jackpot pales in comparison, however, to tonight’s Powerball jackpot, which has soared to $600 million. It is the highest that jackpot has been in history. The odds of winning that drawing are also 175 million to 1.
