Mega Millions Jackpot Rises to $940 Million After Zero Winners

January 4, 2023, 1:07 pm

The Mega Mil­lions jack­pot rose to around $940 mil­lion after anoth­er draw saw a num­ber of losers but no big winners.

The num­bers drawn late Tues­day were 25, 29, 33, 41, 44 and the gold­en Mega­ball 18.

The next draw­ing will be held on Fri­day night.

This time, the $940 mil­lion jack­pot is for one win­ner who choos­es to recoup his annu­ity for 29 years. Most win­ners opt for cash div­i­dends, but Fri­day night’s draw brings in about $483.5 million.

Tues­day’s draw­ing had more than 2.9 mil­lion win­ning tick­ets in vary­ing amounts, includ­ing three $4 mil­lion sold in Ari­zona, Mis­sis­sip­pi and South Dako­ta, Mega Mil­lions said in a statement. .

The absence of a win­ner in the esti­mat­ed $785 mil­lion jack­pot on Tues­day means no one has won the top prize for the 23rd time in a row.

This new jack­pot remains the sixth jack­pot in US history.

With a 1 in 302.6 mil­lion chance of win­ning the first prize, it’s no sur­prise that there won’t be a jack­pot winner.

The jack­pot is the biggest since Cal­i­forn­ian won the $2.04 bil­lion Power­ball prize on Novem­ber 8th. The win­ner of that award has not yet been announced.

In the game’s 20 years, Mega Mil­lions has sur­passed Fri­day’s esti­mat­ed jack­pot three times: $1.53 bil­lion in 2018, $1.05 bil­lion in 2021 and $1.33 bil­lion in July. I have announced that I will not.

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