Mega Millions Now Worth $22 Million
Dec. 23, 2013 – Nobody was able to match all six numbers in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing, so the jackpot prize rolled over again to reach $22 million ahead of Tuesday’s drawing.
Friday’s Mega Millions numbers were 3, 4, 31, 49, 57 and the Mega Ball was 6. The Megaplier drawn Friday was 2x, so winning tickets with the Megaplier option added are worth two times their normal prize value.
There were three new millionaires made, being able to match all the white balls in Friday’s drawing. These winners are from Arizona, Massachusetts, and Texas. None of these players chose to add the Megaplier to their tickets.
Nearly 40 players matched four of the white balls and the Mega Ball for third prizes. Three players won $10,000 third prizes with Megaplier, and another 31 players scored the regular $5,000 third prize.
Overall, about 1,340,906 Mega Millions players became winners Friday night, scoring more than $5.4 million in prize money.
The $22 million jackpot up for grabs Tuesday carries a cash value of $11 million, and the drawing will be held at 11 p.m. ET.
