The last player from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot was Cristy Davis of Waterford who won $70 million playing Powerball in February. With her winnings, Davis said she planned to buy a new house and car.
And while she was a lucky winner, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

Mega Millions Winning Numbers July 24, Estimated Jackpot Now $124 Million
Tonight’s Friday, July 24, Mega Millions jackpot is now an estimated $124 million. In case that isn’t enough to whet your appetite, the cash payout option is $99.9 million, which would put you this close to triple-digit millionaire status should you be the lucky winner.
Amazingly enough, the previous drawing, on Tuesday, July 21, had no million-dollar winners. This means that no tickets matched even the five white balls.
The closest were 15 tickets matching four white balls and the gold Megaball. Out of the 15, three included the Megaplier, multiplying those prizes to $30,000. In Pennsylvania, 11 tickets matched four white balls to win $500 each.
