Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Friday’s $393M Mega Millions drawing? Live results, winning numbers (5/24/2019)

Did anyone win the Mega Millions lottery drawing last night? The Mega Millions winning numbers are drawn live Friday, May 24, 2019.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s drawing estimated at $393 million is tied for the 30th largest in U.S. lottery history.

If someone wins, it would be the 10th biggest Mega Millions prize. The cash option is worth $244.2 million.

The winning numbers were: 14, 41, 44, 56, 62. The Mega Ball drawn was 10. The Megaplier was 2x.

The Mega Millions jackpot has gone unclaimed since March 12, when Hira Singh of Shawnee, Kansas won the $50 million top prize with a ticket he bought at a QuikTrip in Kansas City, Missouri. Since then, 20 twice-weekly drawings have been held without a jackpot winner.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 10, 50, 55, 56 and 58. The Mega Ball drawn was 15 with a Megaplier of 5X.

That drawing produced five second-prize winners whose tickets matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball. Tickets sold in Pennsylvania and Texas are worth $5 million because the ticket holders spent an extra $1 to exercise the Megaplier option. The $1 million tickets were bought in Connecticut, Florida, and Wyoming.

In New Jersey, seven third-prize tickets were sold that matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball.

One – sold at 7-Eleven in Mount Holly – was bought with the Megaplier and is worth $50,000. Six $10,000 tickets were bought at the following locations:

  • Swedesboro Shell on Route 322 in Swedesboro
  • Stop & Shop on Perrineville Road in Monroe, Middlesex County
  • Cedar Bridge Tiger Mart on Brick Boulevard in Brick
  • P & M Convenience Store on West Union Boulevard in Bound Brook
  • Acme on Route 23 north in Sussex Borough
  • Clark Lunch Box on Raritan Road in Clark

On March 1, 54-year-old Warren County resident Michael J. Weirsky hit the $273 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each. The odds of a ticket matching five numbers and the Mega Ball are 302,575,350 to 1. It’s a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers.
