Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Friday’s $97M Mega Millions drawing? Results, winning numbers (10/23/2020)
The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s lottery drawing has increased to an estimated $97 million with a cash option of $75.1 million.
The drawing will be held at 10:59 p.m. and televised on WABC-7 in New York City and Fox 29 in Philadelphia.
The winning numbers were: 18, 34, 44, 60, and 69. The Mega Ball drawn was 22 with a Megaplier of 2X.
No one across the country won Tuesday’s $86 million jackpot. There were also no second-prize, $1 million tickets sold.
In New Jersey, 12 tickets sold matched four numbers but not the Mega Ball. Two were purchased with the Megaplier option for an extra $1, tripling those prizes to $1,500 each, state lottery officials said. The other 10 tickets are valued at $500 apiece.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 46, 54, 57, 58 and 66. The Mega Ball drawn was 10 with a Megaplier of 3X.
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.
The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence reopened last month to the public by appointment. 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 might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.
