Mega Millions Jackpot Closes in on $100 Million
Feb. 3, 2014 – The Mega Millions jackpot rolled over again Friday night after no tickets matched all six winning numbers drawn. The big prize now sits at an estimated $94 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
The winning numbers drawn Friday night were 3, 9, 13, 47, 52 and the Mega Ball was 8. Friday’s Megaplier was 4x, so winning tickets with the Megaplier option added will be worth 4 times their normal prize amount.
Though nobody won Friday night’s jackpot, there was one Mega Millions player who became a new millionaire Friday night. One ticket sold in Florida matched all five white numbers drawn to win Mega Millions’ $1 million second prize.
At the third prize level, nearly 40 players matched four of the white numbers drawn and the Mega Ball. 35 of those winners will take home $5,000 third prizes, and thanks to Megaplier, two third-prize winners scored $20,000 prizes.
Overall, more than 1.44 Mega Millions players won one of the game’s prize Friday night, racking up $4,564,492 in non-jackpot prizes.
Tuesday’s drawing will be held at 11 p.m. and the estimated $94 million jackpot carries with it a cash option of $52 million.
