For the latest results when they happen Tuesday night, keep this page bookmarked and refresh it to see if you hold the winning numbers.

Tonight's 07/02/19 jackpot is estimated at $83 million, with a cash-value option of $54 million. The total jackpot could increase depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing.

How much money is $88 million? If you were to stack $100 bills on top of each other and reach the top of the Empire State Building (305 ft), then it would still be $3 million shy of Tuesday night's jackpot.

The numbers last Friday (06/28/19) were: 02-35-49-53-63 with a Mega Ball of 01. The Megaplier was 2. There was no grand prize winner Friday, and there were also no tickets that matched all five white balls correctly for the second prize of $1 million. There were 16 tickets nationwide that matched four of the five white balls plus the gold Mega Ball for the third prize.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2 and odds of winning with a $2 Mega Millions ticket are one in 303 million.

The most recent winning jackpot ticket for $522 million was sold in San Diego, California, at Sorrento Deli Mart. The winner has not yet filled out claim forms with the California Lottery. Sorrento Deli Mart will collect a retailer bonus of $1 million for selling the winning ticket. That $1 million is from the California Lottery, and is not subtracted from the winner's grand prize.

Winners in California have 180 days from the date of the drawing to redeem their ticket to claim their winnings.

Tuesday night we will post the Mega Millions 07/02/19 drawing payouts and tell if there was a winner and where that winner came from, if so.
