Tuesday night’s Mega Million jackpot didn’t result in any big winners, which means the pot has only grown bugger ahead of the next drawing later this week.
On Tuesday, the winning numbers of 7, 10, 15, 31 and 57 were pulled, with the gold Mega Ball with a Megaplier of 2x was pulled with a 21.
According to the Lottery winners’ index, not only did no one get a perfect match for a Jackpot or second-price $1 million prize. However, 14 players will take home $10,000 and three will take home $20,000 for matching four numbers and Mega Ball. Additional prizes ranging from $2, which 254,644 players will receive, up to $1,000, which 76 players will get, are also being awarded around the country.
The jackpot was estimated to be $97M ahead of Tuesday’s drawing with a cash-out option of $77.2M. According to NJ.com, Friday’s upcoming jackpot will be worth an estimated $108M.
According to the Mega Millions, the last jackpot was won by a player in California on July 31, with that winner taking home a $22M prize. It was the fourth winner in 2020, with two players in New Jersey taking home $202 million in February and $123 million in July, while a player in Arizona won a $414 million prize in June.
Mega Millions drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. EDT.
