RELEASE DATE: 9/10/2016
The Mega Millions jackpot keeps growing – after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night, the prize for next Tuesday, September 13, will be an estimated $122 million ($82 million cash)! The winning numbers for September 9 were 1, 34, 43, 44 and 63, plus the Mega Ball 11.
Three tickets matched the first five numbers Friday night, only missing the Mega Ball for the jackpot. Two were sold in New York and are worth $1 million each. The third was sold in South Carolina, and included the optional Megaplier (a $1 additional purchase, available in most states). With the 4x Megaplier drawn, it makes that ticket worth $4 million!
It's the 22nd time in 2016 that a Match 5 winning ticket included the Megaplier to increase the standard $1 million prize to as much as $5 million.
The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won on July 22. Two winning tickets were sold for that $15 million jackpot, one each in Georgia and Virginia. Neither prize has been claimed to date -- check your tickets!
