Mega Millions Jackpot Grows To $189 Million

Although plenty of people brought tickets for the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday night, there was no grand prize winner for the $170 million jackpot, with a cash value of $98.8 million.

The winning Mega Millions numbers were 6, 15, 41, 63, and 64, with a gold Mega Ball of 24. The Megaplier was 4X.

Despite the lack of grand prize winners, one person managed to become an instant millionaire. A player from Ohio hit the Match 5 and won a $1 million prize. If the player would have matched five numbers with the Megaplier, they would have won $4 million.

Aside from the one instant millionaire of the night, several other players won smaller monetary prizes from the Tuesday drawing.

Eight players hit the Match 4 plus gold Mega Ball, winning $10,000 apiece. Meanwhile, only two players hit the Match 4 plus the gold Mega Ball with the Megaplier and won $40,000 each.

The rest of the Mega Millions’ prizes from the night ranged between $2 and 2,000.

The next Mega Millions drawing will reach an estimated $189 million with a cash option of $109.9 million. The numbers will be drawn on Friday, June 3 at 11 pm ET.

The latest jackpot comes after a player in New Jersey brought in a $1 million winning ticket. The lottery ticket, which matched five numbers, was purchased for the Friday drawing at Algarve Bakery & Deli in Hillside.

Jackpot winners can receive their grand prize winnings through either a one-time lump sum payment or an annuity. Those who choose the annuity receive one immediate payment, followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year.

Mega Millions can be played in 45 states as well as the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
