Georgia’s Lucky Strike: A Pair of $1 Million Mega Millions Tickets Sold

In an exhilarating turn of events, Georgia has found itself home to two Mega Millions tickets, each valued at $1 million, amidst one of the most significant jackpot wins in the lottery’s annals. The drawing on Tuesday marked the end of a three-month anticipation, crowning a $1.13 billion jackpot—the lottery’s fifth largest—to a single ticket holder in Neptune, New Jersey.

This momentous win, opting for a $537.5 million cash payout, originates from a Neptune township liquor store, situating the coastal town into the lottery lore. In addition to Georgia’s million-dollar tickets, six others fetched $10,000 each, enriching the Peach State’s lottery narrative.

The latest winning numbers from the March 26, 2024 drawing were 7, 11, 22, 29, and 38, with the Mega Ball being 4.

Georgia’s winners have varying options for claiming their winnings based on the amount. Prizes up to $600 can be claimed across a wide array of outlets, including any Georgia Lottery retailer, offices, or via mail, with the method of payment varying from cash to money orders. Winnings over $600 necessitate a visit to the Georgia Lottery Headquarters or district offices or a mail-in claim, with prizes up to $25,000 claimable at GLC Kiosks in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, typically processed the same day.

Mega Millions entrants pick their hopeful numbers or opt for the Quik Pick for automated selection. With nine winning combinations, prizes range from $2 to the grand jackpot. An additional Megaplier feature multiplies non-jackpot winnings for an extra $1 per play, enabling winners to magnify their take-home.
