Mega Millions Numbers For 07/05/19: Friday Jackpot is $95 Million

The Mega Millions jackpot for 07/05/19 climbed to $95 million, and the drawing for tonight happened around 11 p.m. ET.

The numbers for 07/05/19 are: 06-38-47-57-63 with a Mega Ball of 12 and Megaplier of 2.

Tonight's 07/05/19 jackpot is estimated at $95 million, with a cash-value option of $61.9 million. The total jackpot could have increased depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing.

How much money is $95 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 $10 million shy of Tuesday night's jackpot.

The numbers on Tuesday (07/02/19) were: 03-25-37-40-55 with a Mega Ball of 13. The Megaplier was 2. There was no grand prize winner Tuesday, and there were also no tickets that matched all five white balls correctly for the second prize of $1 million. There were six tickets nationwide that matched four of the five white balls plus the gold Mega Ball for the third prize of $10,000. Two of those six purchased the Megaplier, which gave them third-prize winnings of $20,000.

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.
