Since last weekend’s drawings, Mega Millions and Powerball players won more than $418,000 in prizes. In all, players won more than $21 million in prizes statewide.

Ticket sales have made it possible for the lottery to raise more than $3.8 billion for the state. Net proceeds will be used this year to help pay salaries of teachers and teacher assistants, for pre-kindergarten programs for at-risk four-year-olds, for school construction and repair, and need-based college scholarships and financial aid.
