Ready, steady and go!
For Tuesday, Aug. 25, the Mega Millions estimated jackpot has grown to $57 million. A cash option of $45.5 million is available to the potential jackpot winner.
Looking back, the last drawing on Friday, Aug. 21, yielded some big winners. As a reminder, the winning numbers were 11 – 15 – 31 – 42 – 63, with a gold Megaball of 14 and Megaplier of 2x.
Two big winners resulted from this drawing by matching all five white numbers. When you match all five white balls, the winning ticket, which some lucky soul in Kentucky holds, is worth $1 million. However, the other winner out of Illinois not only matched all five white balls but also purchased that $1 Megaplier. Thus, that ticket doubles to $2 million.
