If it was for the Mega Millions or Powerball games, you may want to start paying close attention. A ticket sold in Washington matched the five white balls and included the optional Megaplier, which means that player won the Match 5 second prize worth $4 million, officials said. One ticket purchased in IL matched the five white balls and Mega ball to win.

Tickets for both games are sold until 9:59 p.m. on drawing nights.

The winning numbers were 10, 12, 20, 38 and 41 with the gold Mega Ball 25. That was the largest prize won in the state.
