There was no grand prize winner on Friday, but there were two tickets sold that matched the top five white balls, and minus the Gold Mega Ball, for the game’s second prize. One of those tickets , bought in North Carolina, is worth $ 1 million. The other second-prize ticket, sold in Michigan, is worth $ 3 million since they bought the Megaplier for $ 1 more.

22 tickets were sold nationwide on Friday, matching four of five white balls and the Mega Ball for the third prize of $ 10,000. Six of them bought the Megaplier for an additional $ 1, resulting in their third prize winnings worth $ 30,000 each.

Mega Millions and Powerball tickets sold out in Texas in January 2020. None of the tickets were a winner and the jackpot continued to soar for every game in the New Year.
