The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $53 million Wednesday.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $43 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were six second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing.  Those winners were from New Jersey (2), Massachusetts, New York, Texas, and Washington.

Twenty players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $5,000.

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 12, 22, 35, 39 and 46. The Mega Ball number was 32.

Hello everyone. I am new to the forum. I have a question regarding Megamillions v Powerball. I noticed the Powerball website lists both the Annuity and Cash values but Megamillions does not. Is the cash value of a Megamillions jackpot win roughly half the annuity amount? Thanks for any replies.

The problem is that you're checking the pitiful "official" Mega Millions site!  Check out, where I think you'll find what you're looking for (and more).


It's 63 Million now...
