The Mega Millions jackpot was reset for the previous drawing, after two tickets hit the jackpot on Oct. 14. The grand prize has already jumped from $20 million to $30 million for tonight, Oct. 21.  That brings the lump sum cash value of the prize to $14.9 million, before withholding.

On Tuesday, the drawing after two jackpot winners were crowned, another two lucky players hit prizes at the second-tier level. One player in New York matched the first five white balls, but not the red Powerball, and won $1 million. A ticket sold with Power Play in Georgia did the same, but that ticket is worth $3 million. The Power Play multiplier was 3x on Tuesday.

Check the Mega Millions winning numbers below, after the drawing at 11:00 p.m. ET.

A few reminders about Mega Millions and the PA Lottery

A Mega Millions ticket always has the same chance of hitting the jackpot or any other prize level, regardless of how high the jackpot climbs, or how many tickets are sold. The actual odds of hitting the jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million.

If you hit any Mega Millions prize through the PA Lottery, you have one year from the drawing date to claim your prize. Smaller prizes can be redeemed at any PA Lottery retailer.
