Mega Millions Reveals Louisiana Winner in Tuesday’s Drawing
Lady Luck is to Louisiana as a mosquito buzzing around your room at night is to your ears, neither one can just stay away for too long. And while most of us would rather not experience a mosquito buzzing around our rooms at night, by the way, here's what to do about that. We'd all love to have Lady Luck breeze by our place and stay the night and a few more days.
Tuesday's drawing of the multi-state lottery game Mega Millions has revealed that "the Lady" has paid a visit to the Bayou State once again. We thought she had moved away since the state's last big win in the Mega Millions game was just about one month ago.
Oh, and for our friends who play Mega Millions in Texas, Lady Luck stopped in your state last night too. In fact, she left a $40,000 prize in Texas and only a $10,000 winner in Louisiana.
Let's look at how it unfolded.
Here are the numbers for the June 13, 2023 drawing as confirmed by the Mega Millions website.
In Louisiana, there were 19 tickets for last night's Mega Millions drawing that garnered a prize of $200 or more. One of those tickets is worth $2,000 and yet another hit it even bigger with a $10,000 win.
Who Won Mega Millions Last Night?
While we don't know names, we do know a little bit about the winning tickets that were sold in both Louisiana and Texas. The Texas winner for $40,000 matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball. The ticket purchaser opted in on the Megaplier, hence the total prize of $40,000. Texas Lottery officials do not release too many details on lottery winners.
In Louisiana, according to the Louisiana Lottery, there was a $10,000 winner sold in the state. That ticket matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball too but the ticket purchaser did not opt in for the Megaplier. Lottery officials in Louisiana say the $10,000 winner was sold in Belle Chase at State Oil Fuel on Highway 23.
The Louisiana ticket was one of 23 $10,000 winners sold across the Mega Millions footprint for last night's game. The Texas Lottery winner was one of three $40,000 winners sold across the platform. There was no ticket sold that matched the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize of $ 260 million last night. The jackpot for Friday's Mega Millions drawing will be an estimated $281 million dollars.
If you can't wait until Friday to try your luck and strike it rich tonight's Powerball game boasts an estimated top prize of $340 million. And, based on our loose interpretation of statistics regarding Powerball that game should be getting a jackpot winner within the next seven days. We base that hunch on history and history shows the Powerball game is due to pay off big.
Naturally, dreams of financial freedom are fun to imagine, the reality is that most lottery tickets are not winners. In fact, chances are you won't even get your money back so only play with money you can afford to spend and enjoy the anticipation even if you can't enjoy a big money celebration.
