RELEASE DATE: 11/11/2015
For just the third time this year, the Mega Millions jackpot will reach an estimated $200 million ($120 million cash value) for the next drawing on Friday, November 13. No ticket matched all six numbers in Tuesday night's drawing – the white balls 8, 17, 20, 45 and 71, plus the gold Mega Ball 4.
There were three winning tickets, sold in California, Florida and Iowa, that matched the five white balls, and they are worth $1 million each. (California prize amounts will vary as they are pari-mutuel based.)
The Mega Millions jackpot has been won seven times thus far in 2015, most recently on September 11 in New York – a $106 million prize shared among five friends. Two other jackpots have been won in New York this year, in addition to two in Illinois and one each in Missouri and Pennsylvania.
Although the jackpot has been elusive since it was last won on September 11, there have been 17 winners of $1 million or more since that time – including one $5 million winner and one $2 million winner. In total, more than 22.6 million winning tickets have been sold at all prize levels in the current jackpot run.
