What were the Mega Millions jackpot numbers for 7/15/22?

The tenth largest prize in Mega Millions’ 20-year history was up for grabs in Friday night’s drawing.

WASHINGTON – Mega Millions players were hoping to make it big on Friday with a $480 million jackpot on the line. It was the 10th largest prize in the game’s 20-year history. The flat cash option was $276 million.

The lottery game’s top prize has grown steadily since the last time someone hit the jackpot in mid-April.

Nobody won the jackpot, but someone in California matched the five white balls to win $1 million.

That winning numbers from Friday night’s Mega Millions draw were: 8-20-26-53-64 and Gold Mega Ball 15.

The estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing is now $530 million, making it the 8th largest in the game’s history.

Friday’s drawing was also the largest prize up for grabs since May 2021, when a five-person trust in Pennsylvania claimed a $516 million prize.

While the prize money is certainly life-changing, it’s far from breaking lottery records. Last year, a Mega Millions jackpot broke the $1 billion mark for the second time. A four member lottery club from suburban Detroit won this $1.05 billion jackpot and opted for the lump sum and received $557 million after tax.

The next Mega Millions draw will be held on Tuesday, July 19th at 11:00pm ET.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states plus Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands.

Earlier this month, someone in Vermont won a $366 million Powerball jackpot after buying a ticket at a Jolley Short Stop supermarket, according to the Vermont Lottery. It was the first time in Powerball history that a jackpot winner ticket was sold in the state. The Vermont winner, who has not yet come forward to claim their prize, can either take the full amount in increments or opt for the lump sum of $208.4 million.
