Has Anyone Won the $1.35 Billion Mega Millions Friday Jackpot? results revealed

A $1.35 billion jackpot was up for grabs in Friday’s Mega Millions draw, the largest offering since October 2018 when a lucky couple won $1.5 billion.

The draw took place on Friday at 11pm ET, drawing numbers 30, 43, 45, 46 and 61, plus 14 for the gold Megaball and X2 as an optional Megaplier.

A Maine person won the jackpot and secured $1.35 billion to receive in 30 annual payments. Alternatively, the winner could choose the cash option and immediately receive a one-time payment of $724.6 million.

Another 14 players won the $1 million second place prize, although none of them had the Megaplier.

The $10,000 third place prize was won by 164 players, 27 of whom received $20,000 for purchasing the Megaplier.

Another 11,198 players won $200, of which 1,922 had the Magaplier, doubling their winnings.

The smallest prize of $2 was won by 4,681,849 players, including 828,701 with the Megaplier.

Friday’s jackpot was the second largest ever awarded by Mega Millions and was only surpassed on October 23, 2018 when the $1.5 billion jackpot was claimed by an unnamed couple in South Carolina.

Thanks to their win on Friday, the winner is now wealthier than the entire Caribbean nation of Grenada, which had a population of 124,000 in 2021, according to the World Bank.

International Monetary Fund figures show that Grenada had a net worth of $1.04 billion in 2020.

The winner will have enough net worth to buy a superyacht like the Topaz, a 483-foot vessel with three swimming pools that costs $527 million.

On Tuesday, January 10th, approximately 6.1 million Mega Millions players secured a prize, but no one won the $1.1 billion jackpot, pushing it back to this Friday.

Last Friday, three lucky players won $4 million each by matching the first five balls. These tickets were sold in Arizona, Mississippi and South Dakota.

What is Mega Millions and how is it played?

Mega Millions draws are held twice a week, every Tuesday and Friday at 11pm ET.

Five white balls numbered 1 through 70 are drawn along with one yellow mega ball numbered between 1 through 25.

A standard Mega Millions ticket costs £2, with most states also selling a Megaplier version that increases winnings by 2-5 times. Visit the Mega Millions website for more information.
