Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Friday’s $750M Mega Millions drawing? Results, winning numbers (1/15/2021)

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $750 million — making it potentially the fifth-largest in U.S. lottery history.

The winning numbers were: 3, 11, 12, 38 and 43. The Mega Ball drawn was 15 with a Megaplier of 4X.

The payout would also be the second-largest since Mega Millions began in 2002.

The last time any lottery player won the top Mega Millions jackpot was Sept. 15, 2020, when a $120 million ticket was sold in Wisconsin. Since then 34 drawings have been held without a top-prize winner.

While no one across the country hit Tuesday’s $625 million jackpot, a ticket sold in Hoboken was one of nine, second-prize tickets bought nationally. All the tickets are worth at least $1 million and matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball.

There were also nine tickets valued at $10,000 apiece purchased in the Garden State, New Jersey Lottery officials said. Each third-prize ticket matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball

The winning numbers drawn Tuesday were: 12, 14, 26, 28 and 33. The Mega Ball drawn was 9 with a Megaplier of 2X.

Two top jackpots were hit in New Jersey in 2020. An anonymous winner claimed the $202 million prize won on Feb. 11 with a ticket sold in Edison and a $124 million ticket was bought in Bayonne for the July 24 drawing.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each and in New Jersey must be bought by 10:45 p.m. on the evening of the drawing. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot by matching five numbers and the Mega Ball are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence is open to the public by appointment. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.

You didn’t win Mega Millions’ top prize on Tuesday. The upside is that the game’s second-largest jackpot in history will be up for grabs on Friday.

The Mega Millions jackpot is rising to an estimated $970 million for those who’d like their prize in an annual payment, or $716.3 million for a lump-sum option, after no one matched all the numbers in Tuesday’s drawing.

Tuesday’s numbers were 10, 19, 26, 28 and 50, plus gold Mega Ball 16.

Eleven tickets still matched five white balls to win at least $1 million. Two of those, both sold in Florida, won $2 million because they included an optional Megaplier purchase.

If the top prize is won Friday, it would be the United States’ third-largest lottery jackpot ever, behind a $1.586 billion Powerball prize in January 2016 and the current Mega Millions record of $1.537 billion from October 2018.

This is the longest stretch without a Mega Millions jackpot winner, lottery officials say. The last jackpot win was $120 million on September 15 by a player in Wisconsin.

Mega Millions can be played in every state except Alabama, Alaska, Nevada, Utah and Hawaii.

Powerball’s jackpot isn’t tiny, either.

Wednesday’s Powerball drawing offers an estimated $730 million jackpot ($546 million cash option).
