There was no grand prize winner on Tuesday, so the jackpot for Friday 12/02/22 will increase to $333 million, nor were there any tickets sold that matched all the white balls as well as the Mega Ball for the game's second prize of $1 million.

A group of 11 people picked the numbers on four white balls as well as the Mega Ball, for which each won $10,000, with four of those ticket holders each winning the Megaplier prize of $40,000. There were 371 tickets holders who matched four white balls without the Mega Ball, which earned them each $500, with 83 of them each earning the Megaplier prize of $2,000. The game also saw 969 winners who matched three white balls and the Mega Ball, each winning $200, with 246 of those ticket holders each winning the Megaplier prize of $800.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery, and it is one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Mega Millions jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier.

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. You win if the numbers on your lottery ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date.

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

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 on Tuesdays and Fridays, 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 one in 303 million. See the Mega Millions website for more information.

Powerball is the other multi-state lottery, and it also starts at $20 million. Its drawings take place shortly after 11 p.m. ET on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday nights. Here is the Powerball website for more information, or to check past winning numbers.
