Last drawing on Feb. 14
The previous drawing took place on Valentine’s Day, when the numbers were: 10 – 32 – 48 – 54 – 55 and a megaball of 18. The megaplier was 5x.
No one matched all six numbers to win the jackpot, nor did anyone match all five white balls to win $1 million or $5 million with the megaplier. That means the jackpot carries over to today’s drawing.
The biggest winners on Friday were 13 lotto players who matched four white balls and the megaball. For nine of them, it was worth $10,000 while four had the megaplier in action to quintuple the winnings to $50,000.
The megaplier costs $1 per play, but multiplies any non-jackpot winnings by 2x up to 5x, depending on which is drawn.

A Chester, PA woman won $1 million in a Mega Millions drawing just last month for matching all five white balls. Three others, in Franklin and Beaver, won $30,000 in January for matching four white balls and the megaball with a 3x megaplier.
As always, good luck and play responsibly.
