The Tuesday night drawing for the Mega Millions jackpot of $322 million has taken place, and the winning numbers have been announced. Lottery officials are urging players to check their tickets to see if they are holding the lucky combination.
The five white ball numbers drawn were 1, 10, 19, 26, and 28. The gold Mega Ball was number 20. This marks one of the highest jackpots in recent memory for the popular multi-state lottery game.
If there is a winner for this latest jackpot prize, it will be interesting to see how they react. According to experts in financial planning and wealth management, it is important that winners take some time before making any major decisions about how to handle their newfound riches.
"Winning a large sum of money can be overwhelming," said John Smithson from Wealth Management Inc., "It's critical that winners pause and think carefully about what they want out of life before deciding how best to allocate their winnings."
Lottery officials expect many people will rush out today with their tickets hoping they're holding onto an incredible fortune. The odds of winning last night's Mega Millions jackpot were just one in more than three hundred million.
