Mega Millions’ seventh jackpot run of the year continues with tonight’s drawing, Nov. 1. In the time since the last big jackpot win, the grand prize has quickly made its way to $87 million. Jackpot winners have the choice to take the cash value of the prize in a single payment. The lump sum cash value of tonight’s jackpot is $43.2 million, before withholding.
The most recent jackpot prize was hit on Oct. 14 at $502 million ($252 million cash). Two players on opposite ends of the country hit that jackpot with tickets purchased in San Jose, California, and Fort Myers, Florida.
Of the six Mega Millions jackpots awarded so far in 2022, the largest was $1.337 billion hit by a player in Illinois on July 29. That prize ranks as the second largest jackpot in the game’s history, and the third largest lottery prize ever won in the US.

Previous Mega Millions drawing numbers and winners
There were several big winners on Friday, but no jackpot winner. Two players won $2 million each by hitting the second-tier prize with the Megaplier option on their ticket. The Megaplier is the $1 ticket add-on that multiplies all prizes other than the jackpot. Without the Megaplier, the prizes would have been $1 million. Those winning tickets were sold in Florida and Missouri.
Another player matched the same numbers, all five white balls, without the Megaplier option. That $1 million-winning ticket was sold in West Virginia.
