As usual, let's go over the statistics for this drawing. No one managed to win the grand prize; however, one player did manage to match five white-ball numbers, winning an impressive $1 million. Since that player opted against picking the Power Play option, the winnings remain at $1 million instead of increasing to $2 million. That particular ticket was sold in Florida.
630,964 participants in the drawing managed to win at least $4 each. There were 18,674 winners in Michigan alone. Five tickets sold in the state won $200 each. That was the highest individual prize won there.
