Mega Millions Jackpot Keeps Rolling
Nov. 18, 2013 – Nobody was able to match all six numbers in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing, so the jackpot prize rolled over again to reach $165 million ahead of Tuesday’s drawing.
Friday’s Mega Millions numbers were 25, 44, 49, 54, 63 and the Mega Ball was 8. The Megaplier drawn Friday was 4x, so winning tickets with the Megaplier option added are worth four times their normal prize value.
There was just one ticket sold that matched all five of the white balls drawn. That player, from New York, now has a Mega Millions ticket worth $1 million.
Nearly 40 players matched four of the white balls and the Mega Ball for third prizes. Two players won $20,000 third prizes with Megaplier, and another 36 players scored the regular $5,000 third prize.
Overall, about 1,850,000 Mega Millions players became winners Friday night, scoring more than $5 million in prize money.
The $165 million jackpot up for grabs Tuesday carries a cash value of $89 million, and the drawing will be held at 11 p.m. ET.
