For the first time in more than a year, the Mega Millions jackpot has topped $400 million! The jackpot rolled again after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 32, 35, 37, 47 and 55, plus the gold Mega Ball 22. The estimated jackpot for Tuesday, June 9, will be a whopping $410 million ($308.2 million cash). At that level, it would be the eleventh largest jackpot in the history of the game, and just the eighth time it has surpassed $400 million in the past six years!
While the jackpot keeps growing, there have been plenty of other winners. In the June 5 drawing, three tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s $1 million second prize – one each in Connecticut, Florida and New Jersey. There were 21 tickets that matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball to win the third prize of $10,000; six of those are actually worth $30,000 each because they included the optional Megaplier, a $1 extra purchase available in most states. Friday night’s Megaplier was 3X.
The only Mega Millions jackpot won to date this year was back on February 11, when a single ticket took a $202 million prize in New Jersey. Since then, there have been more than 16.5 million winning tickets at all prize levels, including 33 worth $1 million or more.
