The Friday night 4/22/22 Mega Millions jackpot was worth $22 million, with a cash value option worth $12.9 million. The jackpot could have increased depending on the number of tickets sold before the draw.
The winning numbers last Tuesday (4/19/22) for the $20 million jackpot were: 02-09-33-47-53 with a Mega Ball of 24. The Megaplier was 3x.
There was no grand prize winner on Tuesday, nor were tickets sold matching the first five white balls, minus the gold Mega Ball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million.
There were three tickets sold nationwide on Tuesday that matched four of the five white balls plus the Mega Ball for the third prize of $10,000. None of those bought the Megaplier for $1 more, which would have made their third prize winnings worth $30,000 each.
