Mega Millions Jackpot Balloons To $356 Million For June 2 Drawing

Posted on June 2, 2020 - Last Updated on June 1, 2020

Goodness, gracious! With no one hitting the monster payday, the Mega Millions jackpot has ballooned. For the June 2 drawing, the Grand Prize now stands at $356 million with a $280.5 million cash option.

No matter which way, that’s an enormous haul if any tickets match all six balls.

Friday night’s winning numbers were 10 – 13 – 32 – 41 – 51 with a Megaball of 03 and a multiplier of 2x. The $1 Megaplier will multiply any non-jackpot winnings by the factor drawn.

No tickets on May 29 hit the jackpot. But a player in California and another in Illinois matched five balls for a $1 million payday. And players in New York and Washington also hit with five balls match, but with Megapliers, earning them each $2 million.

When you play Lotto in Pennsylvania, you may buy tickets online from the convenience of home –  on desktop or mobile. If you sign up here, you will receive a free $20 and a generous deposit bonus of up to $250 to get started.

Despite rule changes brought on by the virus, jackpot still growing

Draw lottery rules have temporarily changed because so many lottery retailers are affected by coronavirus closures nationwide. Once the now enormous jackpot hits, it will reset down to $20 million rather than the usual $40 million. That could be a reason to get in now.

The other major change is to the roll amount from drawing to drawing. There is currently no minimum increase, but that doesn’t seem to matter, given the enormous Mega Millions jackpot.

The PA iLottery meanwhile continues to grow, recently crossing $1 billion in sales within its first two years in operation.

Winning Mega Millions  Numbers June 2

Drawings for Mega Million are every Tuesday and Friday night. The winning numbers will appear here after the 11 p.m. ET drawing.

As always, play responsibly and keep it fun. And remember, all proceeds from the PA lottery benefit older Pennsylvanians.

Winning numbers: 9 – 20 – 23 – 26 – 29  Megaball: 8

Megaplier: 3X
