Mega Millions lottery: Did you win the $401M Mega Millions drawing? Results, winning numbers (1/1/2021)
The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s lottery drawing has increased to an estimated $401 million, with a cash option of $305.4 million.
The winning numbers were: 8, 24, 53, 68 and 69. The Mega Ball drawn was 7 with a Megaplier of 5x.
The Mega Millions jackpot was last won on Sept. 15 when a $120 million ticket was sold in Wisconsin. It’s been hit twice in New Jersey this year — an anonymous winner claimed the $202 million prize won on Feb. 11 with a ticket sold in Edison and a $123 million ticket was bought in Bayonne for the July 23 drawing.
No one across the country hit Tuesday’s jackpot.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 1, 31, 35, 48 and 62. The Mega Ball drawn was 19 with a Megaplier of 3x.
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.
