It’s Tuesday, and that means another exciting Mega Millions drawing takes place tonight. The jackpot steps up to $247 million for June 14, after two months of drawings with no top prize winner. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s jackpot is $140.6 million before taxes. That’s the amount a lucky winner would get if they choose to take the prize in a single payment.

In the previous drawing on Friday, the coveted 5X Megaplier was drawn. Megaplier is the $1 ticket option that multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot. Any player who matches the first five balls would have their $1 million prize multiplied to $5 million in the case of the 5X Megaplier.

Unfortunately, no one hit the $1 million prize this time around. Only three of the $10,000 winners had their prizes multiplied to $50,000. The 5X multiplier is rare, having only a 1 in 15 chance of coming up in a drawing.

Check tonight’s Mega Millions winning numbers here, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.

Mega Millions: A history of good luck

Did you know, on May 17, 2002, a player in Illinois hit the jackpot in the first Mega Millions drawing ever held? The starting jackpot at that time was $28 million. The second jackpot hit was just a week later.

Since then, there have been 227 jackpot winners in Mega Millions’ history. Twenty-four of those jackpots were over $300 million!

The highest jackpot Mega Millions has ever awarded was $1.537 billion, won by a player in South Carolina in 2018. That jackpot remains the highest jackpot in the world to be won by a single ticket.

The biggest Mega Millions prize ever hit here in Pennsylvania was just last year. A single ticket purchased in Bucks County hit the huge $516 million prize on May 21. PA has had three Mega Millions jackpot winners since the game debuted here in 2010.
