Mega Millions Rolls to 10th Largest Jackpot EverWednesday May 22nd 2019
The Mega Millions jackpot has jumped again to $393 million, its tenth biggest-ever prize! The estimated cash value up for grabs on Friday is $244.2 million.
No one won the Mega Millions jackpot in the May 21 drawing, but it produced an interesting run of the number five showing up repeatedly. Five tickets matched the five white balls (10, 50, 55, 56 and 58 – the Mega Ball was 15), to win the Match 5 second prize.
The Megaplier option was also getting in on the number five action – it was an incredible 5X on Tuesday. That means two of the Match 5 tickets, sold in Pennsylvania and Texas, are worth a mega-massive $5 million each after choosing the Megaplier add-on!
There were a total of 878,307 winners in Tuesday’s draw. That means there have been nearly 12.7 million prizes won since the jackpot was last won in Missouri on March 12. 23 of those have been prizes of $1 million or more.
Historically, there have been multiple jackpot winners in May over a number of years. Will the trend continue with a top prize winner this month?
