The winning numbers for the Mega Millions jackpot are getting close to a billion dollars.

The jackpot for Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing, which was projected to be worth $940 million, was won by a winning combination of numbers.

On Friday night’s drawing, the winning numbers for the jackpot were 3, 20, 46, 59, and 63, and the Gold Mega Ball number was 13.

There have only been three jackpots higher than the one that is projected to be won on Friday in the more than 20 years since the game was first played in 2002. The single ticket sold in South Carolina on October 23, 2018, which earned $1.537 billion, is still the winner of the Mega Millions record jackpot. “There was the huge $1.337 billion jackpot won in Illinois last July, and there was a $1.05 billion prize won in Michigan on January 22, 2021,” Mega Millions announced in a statement this week. Both of these wins occurred two years ago.

Since the 14th of October, there have been 23 drawings in a row, but no one has been able to claim the grand prize, thus the amount that is up for grabs has increased to almost a billion dollars.

If there was no one who was lucky enough to win on Friday’s drawing, the next drawing will be placed on Tuesday.

After no winning ticket was purchased, the Mega Millions jackpot grew to an astounding $1.1 billion.

As a result of the fact that no winning tickets were purchased for Friday night’s drawing worth $940 million, the Mega Millions jackpot has increased to an estimated $1.1 billion, as was reported by Mega Millions early on Saturday morning. On Tuesday evening, there will be a drawing for the next prize.

The winning numbers for the lottery on Friday were 3, 20, 46, 59, and 63, while the Mega Ball was 13.

If the numbers stay the same, the Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday will have the third-highest jackpot in the game’s entire history. The most recent winner of a Mega Millions jackpot worth more than $1 billion was announced on July 29 in Illinois, and they took home a prize worth $1.337 billion.

Since the jackpot was last won on October 14, there have been a total of 24 draws held.

A single winning Powerball ticket was purchased in the state of California one month ago, and the resulting jackpot of $2.04 billion was the largest in the history of the lottery. The name of the winner has not yet been disclosed.

A winner who chooses to receive their prize in the form of an annuity would get $1.1 billion. That will be distributed to you in 29 equal annual payments. However, the winners nearly always select the cash option, which for the drawing that will take place on Tuesday will be at least an estimated 568.7 million dollars.

Taxes at the federal level are deducted, and depending on the state in which the winner resides, state taxes may also be deducted.

When there is more than one winning ticket, the jackpot is divided among the winners.

There is a staggering one in 302.6 million chance that a player will walk away with the Mega Millions jackpot.

The Mega Millions lottery is played in all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands of the United States.
