Indiana and Michigan Players Share $91M Mega Millions Jackpot

In this second Mega Millions win this year, the jackpot was shared by two different players. This time, Indiana and Michigan claim the honors. This is especially important since this marks the first time that Indiana has sold a winning combination after joining Mega Millions in 2010. Further, this is the 14th time Michigan sold a winning ticket and has now moved into a 4th place tie with Georgia as the luckiest Mega Millions states.
The winning Mega Millions numbers for Tuesday Feb 01, 2011 were:

16 22 23 26 35 Megaball 31 - Megaplier 4

In this drawing, Lottery Power Picks recommended 518 combinations. Of these, we had 13 winners: (8) mb, (2) mb+1w, (1) mb+2w, and (2) 3w, returning $46 back to our players. Our 5 number pool had 1,633,366 combinations. The first other winning combos were located at:
  • 3-w @ # 495 - LPP Winner
  • 3-w + Megaball @ # 22,148
  • 4-w @ # 1,807
  • 5-w @ # - na -
There were two MM jackpot winners, one from Indiana and one from Michigan, so the jackpot resets to $12 million with a cash option of $7.5M and a yield of 4.23%

Note: Based on the results of our Poll , we decided to recommend all Power & Mega balls in every drawing after Octorber 22, 2007. This change will make these lotteries consistent with the International and other "mega" ball based lotteries.
