Details Of Tuesday's Mega Millions® Drawing Results In Iowa

Tickets Sold in Shenandoah and Coggon Came So, So Close

DES MOINES, Iowa - The official results show that more than 50,000 plays sold in Iowa won prizes in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing that reached $400 million - the third largest jackpot in the game's history.

Two tickets purchased in Shenandoah and Coggon came within one number of having a share of Tuesday's jackpot and won prizes of $15,000 each. The monster jackpot was split by tickets purchased in Florida and Maryland.

Here is a look at Tuesday's drawing and its Iowa results:

  • A total of 50,107 plays purchased by Iowa Lottery players won prizes ranging from $1 up to $15,000. Each ticket that won a $15,000 prize matched four of the first five numbers drawn and the Mega Ball. This is normally a $5,000 prize. Since each ticket had the Megaplier® option added, the wins were multiplied by 3 making them each a $15,000 prize. They were purchased at Casey's, 501 W. Clarinda Ave. in Shenandoah; and Casey's, 5110 S. Highway 13 in Coggon.
  • The winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot drawing were: 11-19-24-33-51 and Mega Ball 7. The Megaplier was 3. Strong sales in Iowa and across the country had pushed the jackpot higher and higher as the drawing approached, and the final calculations lifted the final jackpot number to $400 million annuity ($224.8 cash option). Two tickets nationwide matched all six numbers drawn to split the jackpot. They were purchased in Florida and Maryland. The Mega Millions jackpot returns to $15 million annuity ($8.3 million cash option) for Friday's drawing.
  • Iowa Lottery players bought more than $823,000 in Mega Millions tickets for Tuesday's drawing, including more than $475,000 in tickets on Tuesday alone. During Tuesday's busiest stretch from about 5-6 p.m., Mega Millions tickets were selling at an average of about $1,085 per minute in Iowa. However, the average Mega Millions ticket price for the day in Iowa remained just $3.21. Lottery officials were pleased that Iowans enjoyed playing at a fun level."
