A fortunate ticket-holder in New York managed to win the $96 Million ($68.5 million cash) jackpot. This is the second Mega Millions jackpot win of 2021 after the $1.050 billion win in the state of Michigan on the 22nd of January. 

The last jackpot won in New York was $425 Million, and it happened on the 1st of January, 2019. This was split between a group of 23 co-workers.

If you somehow missed it, these are the Mega Millions winning numbers of the 16th of February 2021 drawing:

Main Numbers: 1, 36, 44, 54 & 66

Mega Ball: 10  Megaplier: X3

During the Tuesday draw, there were a total of 515,119 tickets who won a prize. Some of the winners include the second prize tier win of $1 Million. This ticket was purchased in California and it did not include a Megaplier so the win was not tripled. Meanwhile, nine people won $10,000 each by matching with 4 of the main numbers and the Mega Ball. One winner out of the nine winners had a Megaplier added to the ticket, therefore, winning $30,000. 236 people won $500 by matching with 4 of the main numbers. 50 people out of the 236 winners had the Megaplier included, which means their final win was $1,500.

Since the latest jackpot win (which occurred on the 22nd of January 2021), there were approximately 3.9 million different winning tickets ranging from all prizes. These include nine ticket-holders who won the second prize of $1 Million.

The next Mega Millions draw will be held on Friday, 26th of February, 2021 at 23:00 EST with a jackpot worth $30 Million (cash option $21 Million). Try your luck before the draw goes live.
