Jackpot changes and tickets available online

With sales down due to coronavirus closures, Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots will reset at $20 million rather than $40 million, following jackpot payouts.

The guaranteed roll amounts for jackpots have also been removed. Jackpot increases will now be based on sales and interest rates. The new changes will be in effect until further notice.

Previous winning numbers and tickets

The winning numbers for the last drawing on April 14 were 29 – 47 – 65  – 69 – 70 with a megaball of 7. The megaplier was 4x. No one hit the jackpot or matched all five white balls to win $1 million.

But ten players matched four white balls and the megaball. Seven of those players each won $10,000. But three players had the megaplier, meaning their win was worth $40,000.
