Mega Millions Friday night drawing estimated at $360 million

·2 min read

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached an estimated $360 million for Friday night's drawing according the lottery's website.

The cash option for Friday night's drawing will be $199.3 million, according to the Mega Millions website.

The Mega Millions winning numbers drawn on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 were: 7 - 12 - 21 - 43 - 55 and Megaball 11. The Megaplier was 2x. The jackpot was $333 million.

The Mega Millions has not been won since April 15 when a ticket sold in Tennessee won $20 million – it was the second time in two drawings the jackpot was won.

When are the drawings?

Mega Millions drawings are Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. Ticket sales end at 10:45 p.m. in Kentucky and Indiana.

How much does it cost?

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play. The Megaplier costs an extra $1 but the payoff could be huge. Megaplier lets players increase non-jackpot prize winnings by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. So if you win the $1 million second-tier prize in Mega Millions, and the Megaplier number drawn is 5, your prize would be $5 million.

Where do I buy tickets?

In Kentucky and Indiana (and most other states) you can buy a Mega Millions ticket at local gas stations, convenience stores and supermarkets until 10:45 p.m. on drawing night. To find locations, search on the Mega Millions website.

How do I win?

To win the big prize, all six numbers on your ticket must match the winning numbers, including the Megaball.

Mega Millions

Match 5 numbers (or 1 to 70) + 1 number (1 to 25) = Jackpot

5 + 0 = $1 million

4 + 1 = $10,000

4 + 0 = $500

3 + 1 = $200

3 + 0 = $10

2 + 1+ $10

1 + 1 = $4

0 + 1 = $2

How do I pick numbers?

Mega Millions players choose six numbers: five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one Megaball number from 1 to 25. Players can select Easy Pick or Quick Pick and have the numbers auto drawn.

What do I do if I win?

Prizes must be claimed in the jurisdiction where the winning ticket was purchased, within a certain number of days.

Players can generally claim a prize up to $600 at any licensed lottery retailer in the jurisdiction where they bought the ticket. Prizes over $600 can be claimed at some lottery offices and at lottery headquarters.
