The fourth Mega Millions jackpot of 2019 was won on Friday night, as a single winning ticket, sold in California, matched all six numbers drawn to win the jackpot of $522 million ($340,065,146 cash). It’s the largest jackpot won since the incredible $1.5 billion jackpot last October, and the seventh largest in the history of the game! The final jackpot amount was adjusted based on actual sales. The winning numbers for June 7 are the white balls 17, 19, 27, 40 and 68, plus the gold Mega Ball 2.
The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won in Missouri on March 12. Other jackpots won this year include $437 million in New York on January 1 and $273 million in New Jersey on March 1.
In addition to the jackpot-winning ticket, there were 1,711,340 other winning tickets Friday night at all prize levels. Three tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s $1 million second prize; they were sold in Arizona, California and Washington. For matching four white balls plus the Mega Ball, 48 tickets won the $10,000 third prize in Friday’s drawing. Five of those are actually worth $30,000 each because they included the optional Megaplier.
In this jackpot run, there were more than 18.9 million prizes won, including the jackpot and 39 other prizes of $1 million or more.
The next drawing on Tuesday, June 11, resets to its starting value of $40 million ($26.0 million cash).
