No tickets match all Mega Millions numbers; jackpot rises to $1.1B

Updated January 6, 2023 - 10:03 pm

The Mega Millions jackpot remains elusive.

The winning numbers in a jackpot worth nearly $1 billion were drawn Friday night. No ticket had all six winning numbers.

Winning numbers were 3-20-46-59-63 and a Mega ball of 13.

Five tickets matched all five regular balls and holders of those tickets will win $1 million each.

The Tuesday drawing will be worth $1.1 billion with a cash price of $568.7 million. It will unofficially be the fifth largest in U.S. history.

The estimated $940 million jackpot has been growing for more than two months.

Even as the prize grows larger, the odds of winning remain the same at one in 302.6 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as in Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It is not played in Nevada. Area players must buy tickets in Arizona or California.
