Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Tuesday’s $865M Mega Millions drawing? Results, winning numbers (1/19/2021)

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $865 million — making it potentially the third-largest in U.S. lottery history.

The winning numbers were: 10, 19, 26, 28 and 50. The Mega Ball drawn was 16 with a Megaplier of 2X.

While no one across the country hit Friday’s $750 million jackpot, there were eight second-prize $1 million tickets sold across the country, including two in New Jersey.

The tickets matched five numbers, but not the Mega Ball. In New Jersey, they were purchased in Wallington and Sparta, lottery officials said.

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

Thirty-five drawings have been held since Adrian Tongson of Racine, Wisconsin hit the $120 million jackpot on Sept. 15. He chose the cash option and won $95.4 million before taxes.

Two Mega Millions 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.

Powerball jackpot grows to $730M; Mega Millions to be $850M

Odds of winning are one in 292.2 million

DES MOINES, Iowa – Lottery players have another chance to win big next week since there were no winners of the top prize for both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots in their most recent drawings.

The Powerball jackpot grew to an estimated $730 million after no one matched all five numbers and the red ball in the drawing on Saturday night. If a lottery player strikes big in the next Powerball drawing on Wednesday, it would be the fifth-largest jackpot ever in the United States.

The winning numbers were 67, 20, 65, 14, 39, and the Powerball was 02.

No one beat the odds in Friday’s Mega Millions drawing, so that jackpot grew to an estimated $850 million. That would be the third-largest jackpot ever if there’s a winner of the top prize for the drawing on Tuesday.

It’s been nearly two years since a lottery jackpot has grown so large. No one has won either game’s top prize in months.

The listed jackpot amounts refer to winners who opt for an annuity, paid over 30 years. Winners nearly always choose cash prizes, which for Powerball would be $546 million. The estimated cash prize for the next Mega Millions jackpot is $628.2 million.

Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Powerball also is offered in Puerto Rico.
