The cutoff time for purchasing tickets will vary by state and lottery retailer, so be sure to check with your local lottery retailer for the cutoff time.

How much do you win if you get 3 numbers in Mega Millions?
If you match 3 of the 5 numbers drawn in the Mega Millions Lottery, you will win $10. To be eligible for the minimum $10 prize, you must match at least two of the white balls and the Mega Ball. Matching just the Mega Ball will earn you $2.
The specific amounts you win depend on how many numbers you match and whether you purchased the optional Megaplier feature, which increases all non-jackpot prizes. On average, players who match 3 of the 5 numbers win approximately $50, with the actual amount ranging from $10 up to $150.
Did anybody win tonight’s Mega Million?
No, nobody won the Mega Millons jackpot in tonight’s drawing (November 14th, 2019). The winning numbers were 11-12-22-41-51 and the Mega Ball was 7. The estimated jackpot for the next drawing on November 19th is $142 Million.
What if I got the Powerball number only?
If you were lucky enough to get the Powerball number only, your winnings would depend on the size of the jackpot. The minimum jackpot is $40 million, and in some cases, Powerball has climbed to over $600 million.
For any given draw, if you get the Powerball number only, you would win the base prize of $4. If the draw is a larger amount, then your winnings would increase, and you would receive a percentage of the total prize pool, up to the full jackpot amount.
Depending on the size of the jackpot, you could win anywhere from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars. The good news is that Powerball is a pari-mutuel game, which means that the prize fund is shared by all the winners and is divided by the total number of winners.
So even if you have only the Powerball number, your winnings could still be a substantial amount.
Do you need all 6 numbers to win Mega Millions?

If you match 1 or 2 numbers, you won’t win any prizes. The overall odds of winning any prize in the Mega Millions lottery is 1 in 24.
