Mega Millions winning numbers: December 16, 2022

The jackpot is approaching half a billion dollars.

WASHINGTON – The Mega Millions jackpot will increase again after no one wins the $429 million Jackpot on Friday.

The winning numbers for Friday’s jackpot were 8-35-40-53-56 and Mega Ball 11. The Megaplier was 3X. The cash option chosen by most winners was $231 million for Friday’s drawing, according to Mega Millions.

Players must match all five numbers and the golden Mega Ball number to win the jackpot. Players face astronomical odds of winning a jackpot: 1 in 302.5 million.

A player in California won $1 million in Friday’s drawing by matching all five numbers but not the Mega Ball. It was a big night for smaller wins: 21 people will take home $10,000 and match three people on the Megaplier to win $30,000.

The next draw will be on Tuesday December 20th with an estimated jackpot of $465 million.

The country has enjoyed a record year for lottery gaming, with several huge jackpots for Mega Millions and Powerball.

A single Powerball ticket in California after months of hype won the record-breaking jackpot of $2.04 billion in November. The winners have not yet announced themselves or determined. California law requires winners to report publicly, but they have one year to do so.

Over the summer, a near-record Mega Millions jackpot of $1.377 billion sent Americans into a lottery frenzy in July. A winner in Illinois finally completed the run and matched all six numbers to take home the grand prize. Two people came forward to request it but chose to remain anonymous, which is legal in Illinois but not every state.

In October, the jackpot climbed again to almost half a billion dollars. Two ticket holders inside California and Florida matched all six Mega Millions numbers, splitting an estimated prize of $494 million between the two.
