The Mega Millions big stake has developed following the Friday night lottery drawing, which didn’t yield a champ for the $99 million thousand award with a money choice of $56 million. Nonetheless, there were a few more modest financial awards that came about because of the most recent drawing.
The triumphant numbers drawn on Friday, Aug. 19 were 12, 18, 24, 46, 65, with a gold Mega Ball of 3. The Megaplier was 4X.
Since the most recent Mega Millions thousand award went unclaimed, the bonanza will develop to $116 million with a money worth of $65.6 million. The following big stake drawing will occur on Tuesday, Aug. 23.
Following the Friday late evening drawing, a player from Iowa hit the Match 5, winning $1 million. On the off chance that the player had raised a ruckus around town 5 and the Megaplier, they would have won $4 million.
There were 14 players who hit the Match 4 or more gold Mega Ball and won $10,000 each. In the mean time, three players hit the Match 4 or more gold Mega Ball with the Megaplier, winning $40,000 each.
The remaining Mega Millions wins from the night ranged between $2 and $2,000.
The latest jackpot comes as a $1 million winning ticket is set to expire in New York City next month. The winning ticket was purchased at the Broadway Newsstand in Inwood for the Sept. 28, 2021 drawing.
The ticket matched all five white balls but missed the gold Mega Ball. At the time, the winning numbers were 18, 30, 43, 68, 69. The player has until Sept. 28, 2022, to claim their prize.
Mega Millions jackpot winners can receive their grand prize winnings through a one-time lump sum payment or an annuity.
Those who opt for the annuity receive one immediate payment, followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year.
