Mega Millions Jackpot Grows to $400 million

The numbers have been drawn for Friday night’s Mega Millions with a  $353 million jackpot, the game’s fifth largest jackpot ever offered.

The numbers drawn are: 7,20,40,54,69 and the Mega Ball of 12. The Megaplier is 3.

There was no winning ticket sold matching all 5 numbers and the Mega Ball so the jackpot rises to at least $400 million for Tuesday’s drawing with a cash value of $224 million.

The multi-state jackpot has not had a winner since Jan. 3 when one winning ticket was sold for $61 million in Tennessee.

Friday’s drawing has a $194 million cash option.

Players have a 1 in 258,890,850 chance of hitting all five numbers and the gold Mega Ball to claim the jackpot

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.
