RELEASE DATE: 10/28/2017
A lucky ticket-holder in Michigan has scored a cool $5 million prize, after matching the five white balls in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing with the optional Megaplier added to the ticket. The winning numbers for October 27 are the white balls 17, 27, 41, 51 and 52, plus the Mega Ball of 13. No ticket matched all six numbers drawn, and the jackpot rolls to $40 million ($24 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, October 31.
That drawing will represent the debut of the new Mega Millions, designed to build bigger jackpots faster and provide better than ever chances to win $1 million! Read about the changes and see more information about the new format and an exciting new play option called Just the Jackpot, available in some states.
The Megaplier is an optional $1 purchase available in most states; it multiplies all non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. Mega Millions remains the only big jackpot game where the full Megaplier range applies to the Match 5 prize level, triggering up to $5 million in prize value. Since October 2013, 28 $5 million prizes have been awarded!
