Kansas Players Win Thousands in March 18 Mega Millions Drawing;
Jackpot Captured in Maryland and Florida
Kansas players did not go away empty-handed in last night's Mega
Millions drawing, even though the $400 million jackpot was hit by
players in Florida and Maryland.
- One Mega Millions ticket, sold in south central Kansas, is
worth $15,000 after matching four of the first five numbers and the
Mega Ball, with the Megaplier option. The Megaplier multiplied the
$5,000 prize by "3."
- Another Mega Millions ticket also matched four of the first
five numbers and the Mega Ball but did not have Megaplier, and that
ticket is worth $5,000. The ticket was sold in southeast Kansas.
- Also sold in southeast Kansas, a Mega Millions ticket that
matched four of the first five numbers, plus having the Megaplier
option, and is worth $1,500.
- Thousands of other players in Kansas (nearly 46,000) won Mega
Millions prizes ranging from $500 to $1.
The winning numbers in the March 18 Mega Millions drawing are
11-19-24-33-51 Mega Ball 7 and Megaplier 3.
Megaplier multiplies any prize won by 2X, 3X, 4X or 5X (except
for the jackpot). A new Megaplier number is drawn with each Mega Millions drawing.
Mega Millions costs a dollar per play, plus an extra doller per
play for the Megaplier option.
The Mega Millions jackpot returns to $15 million for Friday
night, with a cash option of $8.3 million.
