It's time to go over some interesting facts associated with the drawing. Two players from Kansas and California managed to win $1 million each by matching all five numbers successfully. However, because neither of them played the Power Play option (which would have won them an additional $1 million), their winnings will stay as they are.
There were 823,700 winners in total, each of them winning at least $4. Michigan alone records having 24,798 winners. Michigan also had as many as six tickets winning $200 each. $200 was the largest individual prize won in the state.
