Mega Millions: A single winning ticket for Friday’s $1.35 billion jackpot drawing was sold in Maine


A ticket sold in Maine beat the ghastly odds on Friday the 13th and is set to claim the Mega Millions jackpot of about $1.35 billion, the lottery said.

Friday night’s winning numbers were 30-43-45-46-61 with a Mega Ball of 14.

Officials said the estimated annuitized jackpot could be worth $1.35 billion, while the potential cash payout is $724.6 million.

“Congratulations to the Maine State Lottery, which just won its first ever Mega Millions jackpot,” said Pat McDonald, who heads the Ohio Lottery and serves as executive director of the Mega Millions Consortium. “It’s the fourth billion jackpot in Mega Millions history.”

Friday’s jackpot was Mega Millions’ second largest ever, surpassed only by the lottery’s record $1.537 billion won in South Carolina in 2018, the lottery said. The jackpot amount rose over roughly the last three months, eventually surpassing the remarkable billion mark.

Before this month’s win, there have been six previous jackpots won on Friday the 13th in the United States, according to Mega Millions.

Other big winners from Friday’s drawing included 14 tickets that won $1 million, according to Mega Millions. Four tickets matching all five white balls were sold in New York, two in California and one each in Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas.

Friday’s jackpot win comes just three months after a $502 million jackpot on Oct. 14, when there were two winning tickets from California and Florida.

The next drawing for an estimated $20 million jackpot is scheduled for Tuesday night, the lottery said. Mega Millions is played in 45 states, along with the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
