Mega Millions: Win a $ 1 billion prize.Third largest in the United States

New York-After a record run of 37 draws, a winning ticket was sold in the $ 1 billion Mega Millions Jackpot in Michigan, making it the third-largest lottery prize in US history.

Winning numbers drawn on Friday are 4, 26, 42, 50, 60, and 24 megaballs.

The Mega Million’s Grand Prize has been increasing since September 15th, when winning tickets were sold at Wisconsin. The next estimated jackpot for the lottery is $ 20 million.

In addition to the jackpot winning tickets, there were many other jackpots on Friday night.

A total of 10 tickets matched 5 white balls and won the 2nd prize of the game. Two of them included the optional Megaplier. It’s available for an additional $ 1 in most states. Sold in North Carolina and Virginia, each is worth $ 2 million after the 2X Megaplier is drawn.

The other eight are worth a million dollars. Two each in Florida and New York, and one each in Maryland, Missouri, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

The jackpot for the next draw on Tuesday, January 26th will be reset to the current starting price of $ 20 million ($ 14.7 million in cash).

The Friday night draw will take place two days after the tickets sold in Maryland match all six numbers drawn and win the $ 731.1 million Powerball jackpot.

In the United States, there are only two lottery prizes that are bigger than Friday’s jackpot. Three $ 1,586 million Powerball Jackpot tickets were sold in January 2016, and one winning ticket was sold in October 2018 at the $ 1,537 million Mega Millions Jackpot.

The jackpot numbers indicate the amount if the winner chooses an annuity and will be paid in 30 installments. Most winners choose the prize. That’s $ 739.6 million in the Mega Millions jackpot.

The Powerball jackpot will be reset. The next draw on Saturday night, January 23rd will be a $ 20 million jackpot.
