Mega Millions Jackpot Rolls Over Oct. 29
Oct. 30, 2013 – The estimated $65 million Mega Millions jackpot rolled Tuesday, growing to $87 million ahead of Friday’s drawing.
This is the eighth time the top prize has rolled over since a $189 million jackpot was won Oct. 1 by the “Lucky Family” from Maryland.
The numbers drawn Tuesday night were 7, 10, 30, 37, 53, and the Mega Ball was 1. The Megaplier number drawn Tuesday was 3x, which will multiply prizes for players who added the $1 Megaplier option to their tickets.
There were no tickets sold for Tuesday’s drawing that matched all five white balls to win the new $1 million second prize.
13 players matched four of the first five numbers and the Mega Ball, scoring themselves $5,000 third prizes.
Overall, more than 1.2 million winners raked in $2,743,646 Tuesday. Friday night’s drawing will be held at 11 p.m. ET, and the cash option for the estimated $87 million jackpot is $48 million.
