Mega Millions Numbers Drawn for $636 Million Prize


By Katie Stinson

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- The winning numbers for the Mega Millions Prize were drawn Tuesday night.

They are: 8-20-14-17-39 and 7 for the mega ball.

People out purchasing lottery tickets around 6 p.m. may have noticed a hiccup. Some lottery terminals all across the state went down for about half an hour, and it's a bad night for that to happen with tonight's Mega Millions jackpot totaling $636 million.

This isn't the first time this year people trying to buy tickets for a big lottery jackpot have run into problems. The same issue affected as many as 50 stores in Cedar Rapids and Marion in May.
