Mega Millions Results, Numbers for 11/27/20: Did Anyone Win the $214 Million?

The Mega Millions jackpot on Friday was estimated to be $214 million, with a cash value of $165.8 million. Here is a breakdown of the winners of last night's draw.

The winning numbers were 4,10, 27, 35 and 58 with the Mega Ball 10 and the Megaplier 2x, according to the Mega Millions website.

Nobody purchased a ticket that successfully matched all the white numbers and the gold Mega Ball, meaning that the jackpot will roll over to the next drawing on Tuesday.

But there were two winners who matched five numbers for the second biggest prize of $1 million on offer. One of them doubled their money because they had the 2x Megaplier. There were 24 winners of the $10,000 prize after they correctly chose four of the white balls and the gold Mega Ball. Eight of those winners doubled their winnings to $20,000 because they also purchased the additional 2x Megaplier.

Some 458 players won $500 by matching four numbers and, of those winners, 102 won $1,000 using the Megaplier. Additionally, 1,086 people won $200 by matching three numbers and the Mega Ball, 239 of whom doubled their prize to $400 using the Megaplier. In total, around 578,000 tickets won at least $2 last night.

The lack of a winner of the big prize means that the jackpot has rolled over to $229 million for Tuesday's drawing, with a cash prize of $177.5 million.

There have been some big winners this year. A ticket sold in Wisconsin on 09/15/20 won a jackpot worth $119 million, which was only the fifth Mega Millions jackpot won in the 2020 calendar year. Other winners over the 18 months included a $372 million ticket sold in Ohio and a $227 million ticket that was sold on September 24, 2019, in the city of Cedar Park, Texas.

How does Mega Millions work?

One of the most popular multi-state lotteries in the country, Mega Millions first launched on August 31, 1996, as "The Big Game." Tickets are sold in 45 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The five states not to sell lottery tickets are Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, and Utah.

Drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at WSB-TV in Atlanta by host John Crow.

Five white balls are drawn from a set numbered 1 through 70, with one gold Mega Ball drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25. With nine different ways to win a prize, your chances of winning at least $2 are 1 in 24, according to the Mega Millions website.

If you are a lucky winner, you will have between 90 days and one year to redeem your ticket, depending on local rules and regulations. All jackpot winners are entitled to either a cash option or an annuity option of an initial payout followed by 29 annual payments that are each five percent larger than the previous ones. All prizes are subject to income taxes.
