Winning Mega Millions numbers for Friday, April 23
The Mega Millions holds drawings on Tuesdays and Fridays after 11 p.m. EST. Tonight’s winning numbers will be posted below when available.
Winning numbers: 4 – 28 – 29 – 30 – 60 Mega Ball: 25
$1.8 million winner sold in San Francisco
The last drawing on Tuesday, April 23 had two second-place Match 5 winners. As a recap, the winning numbers were 6 – 23 – 43 – 49 – 52 with a gold Mega Ball of 5.
While both tickets matched all five white balls, the winner in KY won $1 million and the CA winner won $1.8 million. So, what gives?
Typically, a Match 5 or second-place winner is worth $1 million without the $1 optional Megaplier add-on. However, in CA, the Mega Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel. Therefore, the prizes vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners. In this case, the pari-mutuel determination worked out in favor of the winner.
According to the CA Lottery, the winning ticket was sold at Richmond New May Wah Supermarket located on 707 Clement St. in San Francisco, CA. Meanwhile, the Kentucky ticket was sold at Murphy Express on Codella Drive in Winchester, KY.
