Are you trying to figure out how to win the Mega Millions lottery? Well, so am I and nearly 90% of all Americans. While the Mega Millions current jackpot is up to $1.30 billion making it the third largest in the history of the lottery.

I'm going to share with you some of the numbers of those who won and these numbers are for the Lone Star State only. Furthermore, are you having a hard time figuring out what numbers to use? There are a few websites that might help you, one of which is

USA Mega has kept up with the most drawn numbers for over twenty years.

USA mega specializes in keeping up with what numbers have been drawn on each individual lottery since the beginning of the lottery in 1992. By keeping up with which numbers were drawn and which have been drawn multiple times or better yet which ones are more likely to pop up again.

You could always use your child's birthday, your anniversary, your birthday, your address, and your lucky number or whatever combination. This list below may help you decide on which numbers to pick.

According to USA Mega, these are the most common numbers drawn based on the past 100 Mega Millions drawings. The numbers are: 3, 7, 21, 40, 58. The most common Mega Ball is 24. Now if you'd like to play the least drawn numbers, they are: 23, 49, 50, 54, 67. Source: USA

Now, if you're like me you'll do quick picks. Which, by the way, about 70% of all big jackpot winners won on quick picks. However, if you're sticking with your set of lucky numbers this is one of the easiest and most popular ways to play the lottery.

The theory here is, that if you play the same set of numbers and they didn't come up they're more likely to come up again next time, right? Now, according to Lottery Strategy. Whether or not a number has been drawn in the past does not control whether those numbers will ever be drawn.

Okay, as for the last Tuesday's Texas winners only, here's who won what.

  • 5 of 5 w/Mega Ball $830 Million - - No Winners
  • 5 of 5 No Mega $1 Million - - No Winners
  • 4 of 5 w/Mega Ball $10,000 16 total winners  - - 7 Megaplied winning $30,000
  • 4 of 5 No Mega $500 310 total winners - -  93 Mgeaplied winning $1,500
  • 3 of 5 w/Mega Ball $200 929 total winners - - 288 Megaplied winning $600
  • 3 of 5 No Mega $10 22,723 total winners - - 7,645 Megaplied winning $30
  • The rest of the winners won less than $30 dollars
  • Total Texas Winners: 580,386 and 195,291 were Megapliers

Finally, if you are planning on playing the lottery, I have some advice. Always play responsibly, if you should be the one in 330 million to win the huge $1.30 billion dollar jackpot, SIGN the ticket, hide the ticket, call Austin and make an appointment to redeem your winnings, stay calm, breathe, and reach out to your CPA, your estate planning attorney, and family physician. Then go to Austin to collect your winnings.

Good luck I hope you win!
