#megamillions Lucky Friday the 13th for a Texas player with a $4 million prize

May 13th, 2016

RELEASE DATE: 5/14/2016

The Mega Millions jackpot is growing! After no ticket matched all six numbers drawn in Friday night's drawing, the estimated jackpot for next Tuesday, May 17, is $174 million ($114 million cash). It's the largest Mega Millions jackpot since last November!

There were three Match 5 winners in the May 13 drawing, one each in Maryland, New Jersey and Texas. All three matched the five white balls – 20, 21, 38, 54 and 66, missing only the Mega Ball of 7. The Texas ticket included the optional Megaplier purchase, making it worth $4 million instead of the standard $1 million when the 4x Megaplier was drawn.

The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won in Washington on March 8.
