Jackpot Grows 1/19

Jackpot Rolls Over:
January 20, 2016 – Nobody was able to match all six numbers in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing, resulting in an estimated $39 million jackpot for the next drawing.

The winning Mega Millions numbers were 2, 17, 31, 39, 47 and the Mega Ball was 9. The Megaplier drawn Tuesday was 2x, so winning tickets with the Megaplier option added are worth two times their normal prize value.

There were two second prize winners taking home $1,000,000 Tuesday night. Those new millionaires are from Michigan and New York. Twenty-nine players matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball to win third prizes, and three of those players won with Megaplier. Those three winners will each receive $10,000 prizes while the other twenty-six prize winners will receive the normal $5,000 prize.

Overall, more than a million Mega Millions players became winners Tuesday night, scoring more than $4.2 million in prize money.

The next drawing will be held Friday night at 11 p.m. ET, and the estimated $39 million annuity jackpot carries with it a $24 million cash value.
