Just one short week is all it takes.
The Mega Millions jackpot hit on July 24, and it hit again on the last drawing, which was Friday, July 31. This means that the Mega Millions jackpot for Aug. 4 resets to an estimated $20 million. The potential winner can also choose the cash option of $16.3 million.
Fourth Mega Millions jackpot to hit in 2020
The Mega Millions top prize being won again makes it the fourth jackpot that has hit in 2020. In New Jersey alone, two tickets hit, one for $202 million in February and another for $123 million on July 24. The biggest jackpot was won in Arizona for over $410 million on June 9.
As a recap, the winning numbers for July 31 were 12 – 35 – 46 – 48 – 69, with a gold Megaball of 23. The Megaplier was 2x, which doesn’t apply to winning the jackpot.
A California ticket matched all the numbers. As a result, the lucky winner takes home the July 31 jackpot of $22 million. However, the winner could opt instead for a $17.9 million cash-out.
