Winning Mega Millions numbers for Tuesday, Nov. 17
Twice a week, the Mega Millions drawings take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. EST. Make sure to check back shortly after tonight’s drawing for the winning numbers below.
Winning numbers: 8 – 13 – 35 – 46 – 68, Megaball: 16
No big winners last drawing, but Match 6 winner in Montgomery County
As a recap, the last Mega Millions drawing yielded winning numbers of 6 -7 – 14 – 28 – 59, with a gold Megaball of 7. Also, the Megaplier was 2X.
No one matched all five white balls, which means there were no new millionaires made. There were, however, a total of 24 winners who matched four white balls along with the Megaball. Usually, this yields a prize of $50,000. Out of the 24, six tickets opted for the Megaplier option. The Megaplier boosts the prizes to $100,000.
And a Match 6 player in Montgomery County, PA, won $1.64 million in the Saturday, Nov. 14, drawing. The ticket, sold at a 7-Eleven in Glenside, PA, matched all six numbers: 2 – 22 – 33 – 39 – 44 – 47.
