Welcome, 2021! The new year is here and there may be no better way to get through all that this year will bring than with $850 million! That’s what the current Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to after the January 15, 2021, drawing failed to produce a jackpot winner. Lottery frenzy is at an all time high as the Powerball jackpot also continues to climb. The next Mega Millions drawing takes place on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, at 11 p.m. ET. Mega Millions drawings take place every Tuesday and Friday and the last drawing did see eight million dollar winners, though no one hit the jackpot.
The latest winning numbers are as follows.
12, 43, 11, 3, 38, 15.
You may see a video from Friday’s drawing on January 15, 2021, below.
Do you play Mega Millions? Are you going to play tonight? If no one wins on January 19, 2021, the jackpot will continue to roll until Friday.
The megaplier can be purchased and that will multiply any earnings won, aside from the jackpot. Though there were eight people who won the million-dollar prize, none had played the megaplier. If they had, their prize would have quadrupled to $4 million.
There were 142 people who won $10,000 and 22 of those winners did play the megaplier and increased their winnings to $40,000. Not a bad chunk of change!
Good luck to everyone who plays Mega Millions tonight!
