Winning numbers drawn for $815 million Mega Millions jackpot


Winning numbers were drawn for Friday night’s Mega Millions jackpot drawing, with the grand prize ballooning after 27 consecutive drawings without a winner. The prize grew $23 million on Friday to a total of $815 million due to strong ticket sales.

The winning numbers drawn for Friday’s jackpot were: 13, 25, 50, 51, 66 and gold Mega Ball 6.

The prize has a cash value of $385.1 million, offered as a one-time lump-sum payment, or the winnings can be paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments.

The grand prize would be the fifth-largest jackpot in the game’s history behind four billion-dollar winners.

The last jackpot was won on Dec. 8.

There was no big winner in Tuesday’s drawing, which featured numbers 2, 16, 31, 57 and 64 and a gold Mega Ball of 24, but two people won $1 million each for matching five numbers.
