NEW YORK — Lottery officials on Monday boosted the Mega Millions top prize to $810 million, giving players a shot at one of the nation’s biggest jackpots.
The winning numbers for Friday 7/22/22 were: 60, 66, 14, 40, 64, — 16
The next drawing is on Tuesday. The jackpot got so big because there hasn’t been a winner for three months. Those 28 consecutive draws, with no one matching all six numbers, have allowed the jackpot to grow gradually from its starting point of $20 million in April.
The featured pre-tax prize of $810 million is for a winner who elects an annuity option that is paid in 30 annual payments. Most players are opting for the cash option, which would be $470.1 million for Tuesday’s drawing.
Mega Millions is played in 45 states plus Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. The game is monitored by state lottery officials.
They may not have won the grand prize, but tickets for Friday’s drawing, worth $3 million, have been sold in three states, including New York and New Jersey.
