Largest Mega Millions jackpot had multiple $1 million winners across the US
t is true that the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever awarded, on August 8, 2023, had multiple $1 million winners across the United States.
In addition to the $1.58 billion jackpot winner in Florida,
there were two tickets that matched all five white balls drawn and the Megaplier, for a prize of $2 million each.
These tickets were sold in Florida and North Carolina.
There were also five tickets that matched all five white balls drawn without the Megaplier, for a prize of $1 million each.
These tickets were sold in California, Pennsylvania, Texas (with two winners), and West Virginia.
It is relatively rare for there to be multiple $1 million winners in a single Mega Millions drawing, but it is not unheard of.
In fact, there were also multiple $1 million winners in the drawing that produced the previous record Mega Millions jackpot, in October 2018.
It is important to note that the number of $1 million winners in a drawing can vary depending on the number of tickets sold
the number of players who choose to purchase the Megaplier.
Congratulations to all of the lucky winners of the August 8, 2023 Mega Millions drawing!
