The Mega Millions jackpot has reached a whopping $322 million estimated annuity value for Tuesday, March 28. The lump sum cash value totals about $170.1 million, before taxes.
Mega Millions started off the year with an amazing four jackpot winners in month of January. But it has now been eight full weeks since someone hit the top prize.
The last two jackpot winners hit the prize exactly a week apart on Jan. 24 and Jan. 31. Both winners were in Massachusetts. It’s been almost two years since a PA Lottery player hit a jackpot. The last jackpot winner from PA won their prize on May 21, 2021.
Check the winning Mega Millions numbers here after each drawing on Tuesday and Friday nights at 11 p.m. ET.

Recent Mega Millions drawings and winners
The previous drawing on Friday was a lucky one for two players in California and Texas. Each state sold one ticket that matched the first five numbers, to win the second-tier prize of $1 million.
In PA, three tickets matched four of the five white balls, plus the yellow Mega Ball. One of those tickets was sold with the Megaplier ticket option, which multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot. The multiplier drawn on Friday was 3x, making that ticket worth $30,000.
The other two winners will get $10,000 each for their win.
Remember that the first five numbers on your ticket are printed in sequential order. You can match those numbers in any order. The Mega Ball number is the only exception. That ball is drawn last, from a separate pool of 25 numbers, and must match your ticket’s last number.
