Mega Millions Jackpot Now $266 Million, Winning Numbers May 15

Posted on May 15, 2020

Whoa! The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $266 million for the Friday, May 15 drawing. That means a staggering $210.1 million for matching all six numbers and taking the cash option.

With the jackpot so high and many retailers closed due to virus restrictions, people are going online to buy their draw tickets in Pennsylvania – a safe and convenient option.

Lotto players in PA can head to the PA iLottery platform, and sign up through our links for $20 free and a generous deposit match bonus.

The winning Mega Millions numbers for the last drawing on May 12 were 7 – 16 – 27 – 44 – 52 with a megaball of 05. The multiplier was 5x.

No one hit the jackpot and just two players, one in California and one in New York, matched all five white balls to win $1 million. But neither had the $1 megaplier, which would have meant $5 million.

Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday night at 11 p.m. ET. You can find the winning numbers for the Friday, May 15 drawing here when they are available.

With the new Mega Millions and Powerball rules, the jackpot will reset to $20 million after it is hit. That is down from the regular $40 million reset amount. Until then, the jackpot continues to ratchet up toward the $300 million mark.

Winning numbers: 11 – 17 – 32 – 33 – 46 megaball 25

Megaplier: 3X

The new, temporary lottery rules mean that when the Mega Millions big one hits, the jackpot will reset to $20 million, rather than the usual $40 million. There is also no guaranteed roll amount from drawing to drawing, but that hasn’t seemed to be an issue for quickly building a massive Mega Millions jackpot.

Best of luck, and play responsibly.
