Mega Millions Drawn For Friday Night

It may be Friday the 13th, but someone could get very lucky tonight if the lottery gods are feeling generous and they match tonight’s Mega Millions numbers.

The numbers drawn Friday night are: 19,24,26,27,70 and the Mega Ball is 12. The Megaplier is 2.

With the big prize unclaimed, again, this past Tuesday, tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot currently stands at $425 million, the second largest prize in Mega Millions history.

Even if you’re not an avid lottery player, it’s hard to resist such a massive prize, especially around the holidays when finances are tight for a lot of folks.

“I’d take care of my family and friends, and then I think I’d slowly disappear,” Old Bridge resident Gus Weinert told Townsquare Media.

“I would go to school. I’d buy a car,” said Sayreville resident Nicole Rondeau.

Some “millionaire dreams” included a permanent exit from New Jersey.

“I guess I’d just send everybody money and then I’d go to Florida,” said Nadine Hart of Old Bridge. “I would be in a really warm climate, like immediately.”

The holiday spirit was shining through some New Jerseyans who couldn’t even imagine what they’d do with hundreds of millions of dollars, except give it to charity or leave anonymous envelopes on doorsteps, filled with cash.

The top Mega Millions prize hasn’t been hit since the beginning of October. One ticket buyer in New Jersey, though, hit for $1 million with Tuesday night’s drawing. The winning ticket was purchased at Shoprite of Manchester in Ocean County.
