Dec. 4, 2013 – No tickets matched all six numbers drawn in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing. The top prize, which was worth $257 million Tuesday night, rolled over to sit at $291 million ahead of Friday’s drawing.
Tuesday’s numbers were 7,12, 41, 44, 59 and the Mega Ball was 3. Tuesday’s Megaplier, which multiplies non-jackpot prizes by the number drawn, was 3X.
While nobody was able to match all six numbers, one player from Missouri matched the five white balls drawn Tuesday night to win Mega Millions’ $1 million second prize.
Had that player added the Megaplier option to their ticket for $1 extra they would’ve scored themselves a $3 million second prize.
Seven people out of an amazing 73 third prize winners chose to add the Megaplier option to their ticket Tuesday night. They’ll win $15,000 third prizes after the Megaplier is applied to the normal $5,000 third prize.
Overall there were more than 3.3 million winning tickets sold for Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing. Those winners collectively raked in $8,024,081 in prize money.
The next Mega Millions drawing will be held Friday night at 11 p.m. EST. The estimated $291 million jackpot up for grabs Friday carries with it a $157 million cash value.
Remember to get your tickets before sales close ahead of the drawing; you can’t win if you don’t play.
