Mega Millions jackpots: On Friday, December 23, the second-largest Mega Millions® jackpot of 2022 is up for grabs! The white balls 3, 4, 33, 36, 52, and the gold Mega Ball 17 were chosen on Tuesday night, and no ticket matched all six numbers. As a result, an estimated prize of $510 million ($266.8 million cash) will be given away. The projected payout would rank as the 11th highest jackpot in the game’s history if Friday night’s drawing results in one or more winning tickets.
After the drawing on December 20, ticket holders in four states—Arizona, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Texas—will enjoy the holidays with $1 million prizes since their tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s second-place prize.
19 third-tier prizes in total were won all around the nation by matching four white balls and the Mega Ball. One of those tickets is worth $40,000 since it had the optional Megaplier, which was 4X on Tuesday night and is typically available in most states for an additional $1. The other 18 winning tickets from the third layer are each worth $10,000.
There have been about 13.8 million winning tickets at all reward levels since the last jackpot was claimed on October 14; 33 of these tickets have a value of $1 million or more. In 18 different states from coast to coast, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia, such large prizes have been won.
There have been 11 jackpot wins of $500 million or more since the launch of Mega Millions in May 2002, including three that have topped $1 billion. On October 23, 2018, a jackpot worth $1.537 billion was won in South Carolina. Here is a comprehensive list of all jackpot winners.
All sizes of Mega Millions jackpots have been won so far in 2022. A mind-blowing $1.337 billion reward was won in Illinois on July 29, a $502 million prize was split between winning tickets from Florida and California on October 14, and even a $20 million prize was won in Tennessee on April 15.
Other states where jackpots were won this year include California ($426 million on January 28), New York ($128 million on March 8), and Minnesota ($110 million on April 12), which saw its first Mega Millions jackpot win ever.
