All Above 31
Posted by bitguru on August 29, 2007
Amazingly, all the balls in yesterday’s $250 million Mega Millions drawing were above 31. As I mentioned before, this had happened only four times before in the fifteen-year history of the Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries.
The winning numbers were 37, 40, 48, 53, 56, with Megaball 44.
I did have a ticket for this drawing, even though I only buy a couple lottery tickets a year. All the numbers on my ticket were above 31, as usual, but I matched only two balls: 37 and 40.
Nobody matched all six balls, so I wasn’t the only loser. The prize pool rolls over to Friday’s drawing, with an estimated jackpot of $325 million ($191 million cash value).
