Imagine waking up this morning and finding out you ALMOST won the $1 billion? You’d be somewhat comforted by the fact that you’re a millionaire (well, if you don’t count those pesky taxes). Not one but TWO Mega Millions players here in Massachusetts last night were indeed just one number away from hitting the $1.1 billion jackpot.

Where were the tickets sold? They haven’t told us yet. But two players had all 5 numbers but missed the Mega Ball. Both will get $1 million. Not a bad consolation prize? But then again, Uncle Sam and the state of Massachusetts will take a nice chunk of that away too.

The numbers drawn were all on the low side… 7, 13, 14, 15, 18 and the Mega Ball was 9. Florida, Ohio, and Massachusetts had the most big money winners yesterday. However, no one got all 6 numbers so now the jackpot could be around $1.35 billion by the time the next drawing which is Friday night.
