Friday night’s numbers were: 11,29,44,63, 64 and the Mega Ball is 3. The Megaplier is 3. There were 3 winners of at least $1 million each for matching 5 numbers but not the Mega Ball in Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Washington.

Tuesday’s drawing has a cash value of $184 million.

The multi-state lottery has not had a winner in 19 drawings going back to October 1.

Mega Millions made several rule changes in October to allow for higher, faster growing jackpots without raising the ticket price. The changes were also aimed at giving more players the opportunity to win prizes. “When the Mega Millions game enhancements were made back in October, they were designed to increase the number of players who would win prizes and allow the jackpots to climb higher, and that has proven to be effective,” said Carole Hedinger, Executive Director of the New Jersey Lottery

Players have a 1 in 258,890,850 chance of hitting all five numbers and the gold Mega Ball to claim the jackpot Tickets for Mega Millions are sold in 43 states and the District of Columbia including New York, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
