Tuesday night is Mega Millions night

With so many major world lotteries taking place across the globe on different days of the week Saturday is no longer the all-important lottery day. Not so long ago most of the major world lottery draws took place once a week on a Saturday night but not anymore. One day of the week when one of the biggest lotteries in the world gets drawn is Tuesday. Without a doubt Tuesday night is Mega Millions night.

As the US Powerball lottery is drawn on a Wednesday and a Saturday night, like the UK National Lottery and Irish Lottery, the Mega Millions organisers opted to make their draws on a Tuesday and a Friday night. We all know that the EuroMillions pan-European lottery takes place on a Friday night, rivalling the Mega Millions but come Tuesday night the Mega Millions lottery has the stage practically to itself.

Last night’s Tuesday drawing of the Mega Millions lottery has a massive $37 million jackpot just sitting there for the taking but the elusive prize managed to evade capture for another three days, at least. The winning lottery numbers for last night’s Mega Millions draw were 10, 11, 35, 37 and 50 with the Mega Ball being drawn as 12. As we said there were no jackpot winners but that doesn’t mean that there were no lottery winners at all in last night’s Mega Millions draw. Six lucky ticket holders won a quarter of a million dollars each for matching the five main lottery numbers but not the Mega Ball and 22 Mega Millions tickets are worth $10,000 to their owners this morning.

As usual Friday night’s Mega Millions draw will go head-to head with the EuroMillions draw and jackpot will have an estimated jackpot of $47 million, compared to the EuroMillions estimated jackpot of £13 million.
