Did Anyone Win the $300 Million Mega Millions Jackpot on 1/11/2022? Numbers and Results

The results of the Mega Millions lottery game for January 11, offering a jackpot prize of $300 million, with a cash-value option of $206.8 million, were revealed on Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET.

The latest numbers drawn were 2, 3, 19, 52 and 58 for the white balls, while the yellow Mega Ball was 16 and the Megaplier was 2x.

The latest drawing saw no winners of the top jackpot prize. But two lucky players (one in Tennessee and one in Idaho) correctly guessed the five white balls (minus the Mega Ball), each bagging the second prize, valued at $1 million.

Both winners purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1, raising their earnings to $2 million each.

There were 20 ticket holders who matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball, winning $10,000 each. Three of them opted for the Megaplier, doubling their third prize to $20,000.

A group of 511 players correctly guessed four of the five white balls, but not the Mega Ball, each earning $500. Of these winners, 93 claimed the Megaplier prize of $1,000.

There were 1,261 people who matched three white balls, which won them $200 each. Of these winners, 225 bagged the Megaplier prize of $400.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Friday, January 14, at 11 p.m. ET, for a jackpot prize of $325 million, with a cash-value option of $224.1 million.

Last Friday's draw also had no jackpot winner. However, it did see two players correctly match the five white balls, without the Mega Ball, to win the second prize.

Among the two second prize winners, the player in Maine opted for the Megaplier, which raised their earnings to $3 million, while the other in Missouri earned $1 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. 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.
