With a cash option worth $14.9 million, the anticipated Mega Millions prize for Friday’s lottery drawing has increased to $30 million.
These were the lucky numbers: 34, 36, 43, 45, and 68. The Mega Ball that was drawn was 22 and has a 2X Megaplier.
The drawing took place at 10:59 p.m. and was broadcast on Fox 29 in Philadelphia and WABC-7 in New York City.
Despite the fact that no one nationwide was able to win Tuesday’s $20 million jackpot, two second-prize tickets were sold that matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball. A ticket purchased in Brooklyn, New York, is worth $1 million, but a ticket purchased in Georgia, where the Megaplier was added for an additional $1, is worth $3 million.
According to lottery officials in that state, the New York ticket was purchased at 3 Bros. Deli & Grocery on Bay Parkway in Brooklyn.
11 tickets from New Jersey had four matching numbers. One, which is worth $1,500, was sold together with the Megaplier. According to lottery officials, the other 10 are $500 tickets.
The winning numbers for Tuesday were 1, 15, 20, 44, and 67. The Mega Ball that was drawn was 23 and has a 3X Megaplier.
302,575,350 to 1 are the chances of a $2 ticket having all the winning numbers on it. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 chance of winning at least $1 million with a ticket that matches five numbers but not the Mega Ball.
Tuesday and Friday are designated as Mega Millions drawing days in 45 states, as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The anticipated $550 million Powerball prize on Saturday has a cash option of $277.5 million. The jackpot might be the 17th highest in American lottery history.
