Four lucky ticket holders won the second prize of $1 million, one of whom purchased the Megaplier and scooped $2 million.

Fifty-one players matched four balls plus the Mega Ball, winning them $10,000 each. Eight of those opted for the Megaplier, which won them $20,000 each.

There were no grand prize winners in last Friday's draw. But one player in Texas matched the first five white balls, minus the Mega Ball, winning $1 million. If the player had purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1, their prize would have been $5 million.

The Mega Millions drawing on Christmas Day also had no winners of the $352 million jackpot.

However, three players—one each in New Hampshire, New York and Texas—matched the five white balls to win $1 million.

The most recent jackpot winner was in Wisconsin on September 15, for a prize worth $120 million.

How to play Mega Millions

Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. ET. Five white balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70, while one yellow Mega Ball is drawn from balls numbered 1 through 25.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the top prize for the following draw.

Most states offer a Megaplier option, which costs an additional $1 per play and increases non-jackpot prizes by two, three, four or five times. Before each Mega Millions drawing, the Megaplier is drawn from a pool of 15 balls. Five of these balls are marked with 2X, six with 3X, three with 4X and one with 5X.

The odds of winning with a $2 Mega Millions ticket are 1 in 303 million. See the Mega Millions website for more information.
