After an eventful week for lottery players, the weekend is here. Friday means another Mega Millions drawing offering up a life-changing jackpot. After resetting, following the big jackpot win in Illinois last Friday, the prize makes its way to $36 million for Aug. 5. The lump sum cash value comes to $21.4 million before withholding.
PA Lottery players have had their fair share of big wins over the past week, as well. Three different players have won the Mega Millions second-tier prize since Friday. The most recent winner from Tuesday’s drawing matched the first five white balls drawn to win $3 million. Without the $1 Megaplier option on that ticket, the prize would have been $1 million.
Will you be the next big PA winner? Check tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers below, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.
