Recent winners and lottery changes

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 7 – 13 – 17 – 21 – 45 and the mega ball was 14. The megaplier was 2x.

No one hit the jackpot, but there were four $1 million Match Five winners from PA, North Carolina, West Virginia, and California. No one had the megaplier.

When the next jackpot hits, the grand prize will reset to $20 million, rather than the regular $40 million. Another change that has resulted from reduced sales during the coronavirus pandemic is the roll amount.

For the time being, there is no minimum increase from drawing to drawing. But with the jackpot still over $200 million, that won’t matter as lotto players take a $2 chance at life-changing money. Adding the megaplier is just a buck more.

Mega Million winners for Friday, May 8

Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. ET. The first five balls are drawn from a set numbered 1-70. One gold mega ball follows and is always between 1 and 25.

Following tonight’s drawing, you can find the winning numbers right here.

Winning numbers: 5 – 20 – 22 – 61 – 70 megaball 4

Megaplier: 2X

There are nine ways to win in the Mega Millions, from $2 up to the jackpot, which is climbing.

Best of luck and always play responsibly.
