The fact no one matched the six winning MegaMillions numbers on Tuesday is bad news for some. But it’s also great news for many.
That’s because the jackpot has now risen to an astounding $630 million after there were no matches for the six digits — 2, 31, 32, 37, 70 plus the gold Mega Ball 25.
The next drawing will be Friday, with a cash prize estimated to be at $360 million.
“The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won at $20 million in Tennessee on April 15,” the MegaMillions website noted. “Three other Mega Millions jackpots have been won to date in 2022: $426 million in California on January 28, $128 million in New York on March 8, and $110 million in Minnesota on April 12. That was Minnesota’s very first Mega Millions jackpot win!”
Obviously, the more MegaMillions balloons, the stronger ticket sales become. And now, it’s at a historical level.
“There were four big winners Tuesday who drew the first five numbers, winning $1 million each. Fifty-two winners matched the first four numbers and the Mega Ball,” CNN reported.
