Mega Millions winning numbers announced for $433
The winning numbers drawn for Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot are 1, 14, 30, 44 and 62 and the Mega Ball number is
1. The jackpot is $433 million, with a one-time cash option of $260 million.
Mega Millions said early Saturday there were no winners, pushing Tuesday’s jackpot to an estimated $493 million, with a onte-time cash option of $296 million.
Tickets cost $2. Sales time cut-offs vary by state but are usually one to two hours before the drawing.
There will be a Powerball drawing Saturday. The jackpot is up to $150 million.
But don’t get your hopes up yet: Even with more options for giant payouts, the odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at
1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball.
The odds of winning both jackpots are one in 75 quadrillion — that’s 15 zeros — according to data scientists at Allstate.
The average American spends about $200 a year on lottery tickets, though residents of some states spend far more.
According to a study by LendEDU, the average Massachusetts resident spends $735 annually on lottery tickets. Rhode Islanders plop down $514 a year.
And if you live in Delaware or New York, you’re likely spending about $400 a year, or $33 per month (see map below).
The odds of winning “scratchers” — those little instant winning tickets that you can buy for prices ranging from $1 to $50 — are better, but it’s still no way to get rich.
Mega Millions jackpot surges to $422M before
The Mega Millions jackpot has surged to $422 million for Friday night’s drawing after there were no winners Tuesday night for the top prize.
This is the seventh time the jackpot has exceeded $400 million and now the sixth largest prize in the game’s history, lottery officials said in a news release.
Although the jackpot is still up for grabs, there were some winners from Tuesday night’s drawing.
Three $1 million tickets were sold Tuesday night in Florida, New Jersey and Oklahoma, according to lottery officials.
Two other historic Mega Millions jackpots have been awarded this year.
A 20-year-old Floridian won $451 million in January and a food production manager from New Jersey won
a whopping $533 million in April.
No winner in Mega Millions as prize surges to $493 million
There were no winners in Friday night’s drawing of one of the largest totals in the history of the Mega Millions lottery.
The jackpot will now be at least $493 million in next Tuesday’s drawing.
It’s possible the total will surge over the half-billion mark based on ticket sales.
The $493 million jackpot will be the fifth-largest in Mega Millions history.
It will also be the largest total since a single ticket paid out $533 million to a person from New Jersey this March.
If there is a winner, and they take the cash payout, it will be worth $296 million.
The winning numbers on Friday were 44-14-30-62-1 with a Mega Ball of 1. The “megaplier” was 2x.
While no one won the big prize, the lottery announced two tickets — in Illinois and Pennsylvania — won $1 million each.
The lottery game’s jackpot grew to a whopping $433 million this week after the July 17 drawing yielded no winners of the top prize.
The jackpot has now rolled over 22 times since the last Mega Millions winner on May 4.
Earlier this year, two other Mega Millions winners made history — a prize of $451 million in January and another of $533 million in April.
The biggest Mega Millions payout of all time was $656 million, won by three tickets, in March 2012.
