The Mega Millions lottery offers another formidable jackpot for someone with the right numbers.
Here are the winning numbers in the draw on Friday:
08-14-27-57-67; Megaball: 05; Megaplier: 4X
The estimated jackpot for the draw is $ 90 million. The cash option is around $ 50 million. If nobody wins, the Mega Millions jackpot wins for the next draw.
For the last time, the jackpot was won in November when a single ticket called for a jackpot of $ 1.6 billion.
According to the official website of the game, the chances of winning the jackpot are 1: 302.575.350.
Players choose six numbers from two different number pools – five different numbers from 1 to 70 and a number from 1 to 25 – or choose Easy Pick. A player wins the jackpot by comparing all six winning numbers in a draw.
The winners of the jackpot decide whether to receive 30 annual payments, each five percent higher than the last, or a lump sum payment.
Mega Millions drawings are on Tuesdays and Fridays and are distributed in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the US Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $ 2 each.
