Mega Millions Jackpot Climbs to Over Half a BillionFriday June 7th 2019
The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $530 million for the Friday, June 7 drawing!
This is the first time the top prize has exceeded half a billion dollars since it hit $1.5 billion last October. It is now the seventh-largest ever prize in the history of the game. The cash amount is estimated at $343.9 million.
The jackpot rolled to its current level after no one hit all six numbers in the June 4 drawing. Tuesday’s white balls were 25, 37, 46, 48 and 68, and the Mega Ball was 25.
Tuesday’s drawing did produce some impressive non-jackpot wins at other prize levels.
One ticket in Colorado scooped $2 million by matching all five white balls. Ordinarily this would have netted $1 million, but the player added the Megaplier option. The Megaplier number is drawn separately, and multiplies any non-jackpot prize. In this case it was 2X so the lucky winner doubled their prize to $2 million.
In the next prize tier, an impressive 46 tickets matched four of the white balls plus the gold Mega Ball. Eight of those tickets will take home $20,000 because they added Megaplier. The rest can claim a $10,000 prize.
