Jan. 29, 2014 – Nobody matched all six numbers in Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing, so the jackpot prize rolled over again to reach an estimated $84 million ahead of Friday’s drawing.
The winning Mega Millions numbers were 7, 16, 28, 53, 60 and the Mega Ball was 2. The Megaplier drawn Tuesday was 3x, so winning tickets with the Megaplier option added are worth three times their normal prize value.
There were no tickets sold that matched all five of the white balls drawn, so no players became new milionaires last night.
Twenty-five players matched four of the white balls and the Mega Ball to win third prizes Tuesday, and four of those players won with Megaplier. Those four players will receive $15,000 third prizes and the other 21 third prize winners will receive the normal $5,000 prize.
Overall, about 1.15 milion Mega Millions players became winners Tuesday night, scoring more than $2.5 million in prize money.
The $84 million jackpot up for grabs Friday carries a cash value of $46 million, and the drawing will be held at 11 p.m. ET.
