According to the lottery website, Friday’s winning numbers were 14, 40, 60, 64, and 66, plus the Gold Mega Ball 16.
The lottery said the night’s prize of $630 million was equivalent to approximately $388 million in cash.
The next drawing is scheduled for Tuesday when the cash prize is estimated to be $464.4 million.
“So far only three lottery jackpots have been won – in any given game – higher than next Tuesday’s estimated $790 million prize money,” the lottery said in a news release.
Two of them were Mega Million jackpots – $1.537 billion won in South Carolina on October 23, 2018, and $1.050 billion won in Michigan on January 22, 2021.
The $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot is currently the jackpot world record, having been won on January 13, 2016.
Although no one pulled off six points, there were four big winners on Friday as they scored the first five. In the case of those three tickets – sold in Delaware, New Jersey, and New York – they opted for the Megaplier, awarding $3 million each. According to the lottery, the fourth ticket matching the five numbers was sold in Virginia and was worth $1 million.
Four Mega Million jackpots were won this year in Tennessee, California, New York, and Minnesota.
