The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.
And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland in 2019 went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

No big winner yet: Mega Millions closes in on $1 billion; Powerball now at $730 million
Did anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot last night? Not on Tuesday (1/19/2021). The jackpot for Friday’s Mega Millions drawing rolls to $970 million.
Sam Singh is selling a lot of lottery tickets at his store in Keizer.
“It’s always this way when the jackpots get this big,” he told the Oregon Lottery last week after a winning $50,000 ticket was sold at the market.
He added: “My advice to players is to buy more tickets. As much as you play, it increases your chances to win.”
Well, technically, yes. But the odds of scoring a big payout are still exceedingly low for any particular ticket buyer.
That said, someone’s eventually going to win big, right? And the Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots are mind-boggling.
No ticket had all six numbers in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, so the jackpot in the game is now closing in on $1 billion. It’s expected to land at about $970 million for Friday’s drawing.
The Mega Millions winning numbers are 10, 19, 26, 28 and 50. The Mega Ball drawn was 16 with a Megaplier of 2X.
Powerball, meanwhile, comes in at $730 million for the drawing Wednesday.
The two big lottery games are played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
No one has won a top prize since last September. The odds that you can match all six numbers to score a massive payout is one in more than 200 million for each of the two games.
The largest Powerball payout came in 2016 at $1.586 billion. A Mega Millions jackpot in 2018 came close to that: $1.537 billion.No big winner yet: Mega Millions closes in on $1 billion; Powerball now at $730 million Did anyone win the Mega Millions jackpot last night?
