Did Anyone Win the $26 Mega Millions Jackpot on 11/2/2021? Numbers and Results

The results of the Mega Millions lottery game for November 2, offering a jackpot prize of $26 million, with a cash-value option of $18.4 million, were revealed on Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET.

The latest numbers drawn were 5, 10, 26, 58 and 65 for the white balls, while the yellow Mega Ball was 9 and the Megaplier was 2x.

No one took home the top jackpot prize but one lucky winner bagged the second prize, valued at $1 million. The player's second prize winning would have been worth $2 million had they purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1.

Ten ticket holders correctly matched four white balls and the Mega Ball, winning them each $10,000. One of them bought the Megaplier, which doubled their third prize to $20,000.

There were 211 players who matched four white balls but not the Mega Ball, which won them each $500, with 45 of them each winning the Megaplier prize of $1,000.

A group of 637 players also matched three white balls, earning them each $200, with 144 of the winners each earning the Megaplier prize of $400.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Friday, November 5, at 11 p.m. ET, for a jackpot prize of $36 million, with a cash-value option of $25.5 million.

Last Friday's drawing also saw no grand prize winner but a player in Indiana matched the first five white balls, but not the gold Mega Ball, to win the second prize of $1 million. Had they purchased the Megaplier, their second prize would have been worth $3 million.

Twelve players in last Friday's game matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball, which earned them each $10,000. Two of those winners purchased the Megaplier, raising each of their third prize winnings to $30,000.

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. 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.
