Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Friday’s $107M Mega Millions drawing? Live results, winning numbers (03/27/2020)

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s lottery drawing has increased to $107 million with a cash option of $83.9 million.

The winning numbers were: 3, 25, 28, 50 and 60. The Mega Ball was 1, with a Megaplier of 4X.

While no one hit Tuesday’s $101 million jackpot, three $1 million tickets were sold across the country. The second-prize tickets, which matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball, were bought in Georgia, Nebraska and Texas, Mega Millions officials said.

In New Jersey, a $10,000 ticket matching four numbers plus the Mega Ball was bought at Pantry 1 Food Mart on Seashore Road in the Erma section of Lower Township, Cape May County, state lottery officials said.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 2, 8, 16, 18 and 31. The Mega Ball was 14, with a Megaplier of 2X.

It’s been more than six weeks weeks since a $202 million jackpot winning ticket was bought at Quick Stop on Inman Avenue in Edison for the Feb. 11 drawing. The winner has yet to step forward and will have the option of remaining anonymous thanks to a new law passed in New Jersey earlier this year.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each and in New Jersey must be bought by 10:45 p.m. on the evening of the drawing. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot by matching five numbers and the Mega Ball are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Earlier this month, New Jersey Lottery officials announced their Lawrence office will be closed until at least April 1 and won’t be accepting walk-in claims. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments may be “temporarily delayed.” Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.

Officials also announced they’ll be extending the expiration date by 30 days for any ticket scheduled to expire from March 19, 2020 to April 5, 2020. It’s possible they’ll approve additional extensions later.
