Don't just toss out your Mega Millions tickets because you didn't hit the jackpot, you could have won a smaller prize.

Although the Mega Millions Jackpot winner was from South Carolina, there were still several other winners who took home prizes worth as much as $3 million.

In New York State alone there were 4 $1 million dollar winners who matched 5 out of 6 numbers.

That's not all. NY also had 35 people match 4 numbers plus the Mega Ball for $10,000, and there were also 700+ in NY who took home $500.

So it's obviously not $900 million, but wouldn't a nice chunk of change like $10,000 or even $500 be a nice surprise?

Make sure you double check those tickets.
