Mega Millions Results, Numbers for 9/4/20: Did Anyone Win the $88 Million?

The Mega Millions jackpot on Friday was estimated to be $88 million, with a cash value of $69 million. Here is a breakdown of the winners of last night's draw.

The winning numbers were 19, 22, 24, 28 and 53 with the Mega Ball 25 and the Megaplier 3x, according to the Mega Millions website.

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

But one lucky winner did take home the second biggest prize on offer. A ticket matched all five white balls, but not the gold Mega Ball, and also used the Megplier to receive a $3 million payout.

There were a further 14 people who won at least $10,000 after correctly choosing four of the white balls and the gold Mega Ball. One of those winners tripled their winnings to $30,000 because they also purchased the additional 3x Megaplier.

Some 347 players won $500 by matching four numbers and, of those winners, 75 won $1,500 using the Megaplier. Additionally, 766 people won $200 by matching three numbers and the Mega Ball, and 167 of them tripled their prize to $600 using the Megaplier. In total, there were more than 427,000 tickets purchased that won at least $2 last night.

With the jackpot not being won, it now increases in size to $97 million, with a cash option of roughly $77 million, for the next drawing at 11pm E.T. on September 8.

How does Mega Millions work?

One of the most popular multi-states 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, Georgia by host John Crow.

Five white balls are drawn from a set of balls 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.
