RELEASE DATE: 6/1/2019
The seventh largest jackpot in the history of Mega Millions will be offered on Tuesday, June 4 – an estimated $475 million ($307.0 million cash)! The jackpot keeps rolling after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 7, 8, 26, 65 and 67, plus the gold Mega Ball 4.
There were still plenty of winners in the May 31 drawing – a total of 1,299,033 winning tickets at all prize levels. Two tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s second prize of $1 million; they were sold in New Jersey and New York. For matching four white balls plus the Mega Ball, 38 tickets won the game’s $10,000 third prize. Five of those are actually worth $30,000 each because they also included the optional Megaplier (an extra purchase available in most states).
Since the last jackpot was won in Missouri on March 12, there have been more than 15.9 million
million winning tickets at all prize levels, including 31 worth $1 million or more.
In addition to the $50 million prize won on March 12, other Mega Millions jackpots awarded this year include $437 million in New York on January 1 (the ninth largest in the game’s history) and $273 million in New Jersey on March 1.
