Did anyone win Mega Millions Friday?

Unfortunately, no one won Friday’s Mega Millions drawing. The numbers drawn were 9-22-33-43-51 and Mega Ball 3. As a result, the estimated jackpot for Tuesday has risen to $290 million, the 11th highest Mega Millions jackpot in the game’s history.

There was still one player who matched five out of the five white numbers and won $1 million, plus an additional second prize winner who won $2 million.

Did anybody win tonight’s Mega Million?

No, nobody won tonight’s Mega Millions. The winning numbers for the June 30, 2020 drawing are 33-45-49-61-69, and the Mega Ball is 9. The jackpot for the drawing was an estimated $20 million, but it will rollover to an estimated $23 million for the next drawing on July 3, 2020.

The chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.

It’s possible that there were winners from tonight, who managed to match either five out of the six numbers or five out of the five plus the Mega Ball, which would result in less prize money though. To find out for sure, you’ll need to check the official Mega Millions results online or wait for the announcement.

What is the prize money for Mega Millions?

The prize money for Mega Millions depends on the the estimated jackpot amount, which can change from draw to draw. If a player wins the Mega Millions jackpot, they have the choice to take the annuity option, which means they would receive the estimated jackpot amount in a series of 30 annual payments, or take the cash option which is a lump sum value.

The annuity option is usually advertised as an estimated amount over 30 years, but the cash option is the estimated jackpot amount minus taxes, with the balance divided in 28 annual payments.

The second prize for matching all five white balls but not the Mega ball currently stands at $1 million. Other non-jackpot prizes range from $2 to $945,000, depending on the location in which the ticket was purchased and the number of winners in the specific prize tier.

What if you win 3 numbers in Mega Millions?

If you win 3 numbers in Mega Millions, you will win a prize. Depending on the draw, the prize could be worth anywhere between $7 to over $500,000. If you match the 3 winning numbers in exact order, you will win a larger prize than if you simply match the 3 numbers but not in exact order.

The prize depends on the amount of players in the draw, the total amount of money spent on ticket purchases and the amount of jackpot money available in the Mega Millions draw. When the Mega Millions jackpot is large, the prize for matching 3 numbers can be much larger than usual.

In addition to the standard prizes for matching 3 numbers, you can also purchase Megaplier tickets which increase the amount of the prize if you win 3 numbers. The cost of the ticket is an additional dollar which multiplies the prize from 2 to 5 times.

It’s also possible to match 2 numbers plus the Mega Ball for a smaller prize. This is also multiplied if you have a Megaplyer ticket. So regardless of whether you match 3 numbers, 2 numbers plus the Mega Ball or the Mega Ball only, you could walk away with a huge prize if you buy a Megaplier ticket.

Do you win anything if you have one number?

No, you do not win anything if you have one number. For most lottery-style games, you need to have multiple numbers that match the specific draw or play to win a prize. Depending on the specific game, you generally will need to match all or a certain number of the draw numbers to win a prize.

For example, if you are playing the Powerball lottery, you would need to match all 5 numbers plus the Powerball number to win the jackpot. Thus, having only one number would not be enough for winning a prize.

How many numbers do you need to win Mega Millions?

In order to win the Mega Millions jackpot, you must match all six of the numbers drawn. These numbers consist of five white balls (1-70) and one gold Mega Ball (1-25). If you match the five white balls and the Mega Ball, you will have won the Mega Millions jackpot.

However, it is possible to win smaller prizes without matching all six numbers. For example, you can win a third prize for matching four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball, and you can win a second prize for matching five out of the five white balls.

Other prize tiers exist with smaller prizes.

To conclude, in order to win the Mega Millions jackpot, you must match all six numbers drawn – five white balls and one gold Mega Ball.

How does Mega Millions pay out?

Mega Millions payouts are based off the jackpot amount advertised in the draw. The Mega Millions jackpot is split equally between all winners in that particular draw. The amount of the jackpot depends on ticket sales and interest rates and is typically announced ahead of the draw.

It is estimated that a jackpot of $100 million would be split between the two lucky winners.

The exact amount that each winner will take home after the draw depends on the number of ‘match 5’ winners. In each draw, the Mega Millions ‘match 5’ prize is set at a minimum of $1 million. With the ‘match 5’ prize often being larger than the ‘match 5 + Mega Ball’ prize, it’s possible that more than two winning tickets could share a portion of the jackpot.

In such cases, if any ‘match 5’ or ‘match 5 + Mega Ball’ winner wins the entire $100 million jackpot, rather than split it with other ‘match 5’ or ‘match 5 + Mega Ball’ winners, then all ‘match 5’ prizewinners will each receive the full advertised jackpot amount.

When a jackpot is won, the jackpot resets to its minimum starting level, which is currently $20 million. Any tickets that match all five main numbers and the Mega Ball, regardless of when they’re purchased, will be eligible for the full advertised value of the following draw.

In addition to the main jackpot, there are a range of prizes ranging from $2 all the way up to $1 million. The exact amounts depend on the numbers of tickets sold in any given draw. Prizes are paid out in a lump sum and are usually paid out within 30 days of the draw.
