Unfortunately, most of us weren't lucky enough to win any sort of life-changing money...whomp, whomp...that is unless you traveled to Maine in the last few days and purchased your tickets.

The winning numbers were, 30-43-45-46-61, and the mega ball number 14 and one ticket sold in Maine matched all numbers making one person an instant "almost billionaire". Yes, the jackpot was $1.35 billion, but the lump sum cash payout is around $700 million. I don't think the winner is complaining...LOL!
