The Mega Million results for November 24, 2020, are in and the winning numbers of Tuesday night’s drawing were 9, 15, 34, 61, and 64, and the Mega Ball was 6. The jackpot was an estimated $200 million with a cash option of $154.9 million but did anyone win the grand prize?

Nobody won last night so the money will roll over—the estimated jackpot for Friday’s Mega Millions draw is $214 million with a cash option of $165.7 million.

However, nearly 600,000 players won prizes in the Mega Millions lottery last night with prizes won ranging from $2 to $20,000. No players matched all five numbers to win $1 million.

How to play the Mega Millions lottery?

To play the Mega Millions lottery, purchase a ticket for $2 per play with the option of adding the Megaplier for an additional $1 per play. Choose five numbers and a Mega Ball number or have the terminal randomly select the numbers.

What time is the Mega Millions draw?

The Mega Millions lottery draws take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. ET

What happens if you win the Mega Millions lottery jackpot?

When a player wins the Mega Million jackpot, they have the option of choosing between an annuity or a cash option prize. The cash option prize is a lesser amount but is paid out in one lump sum, whereas the annuity is paid out in 30 graduated payments over 30 years.

Until further notice, the starting jackpot will vary based on sales and will be announced before each Mega Millions drawing. Previously, the jackpot always started at $40 million and increased by at least $5 million each time it was not won.

However, the system changed in April in response to the pandemic. At the time, Gordon Medenica, Lead Director of the Mega Millions Consortium and Director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming, said: “The value of the Mega Millions jackpot is based on projected sales, and typical sales patterns have been altered because the current health crisis has required people to stay home.

“We are concerned, first and foremost, with everyone’s health and well-being. Meanwhile, these adjustments will allow the states and jurisdictions that sell Mega Millions tickets to continue generating much-needed revenue to support state budgets.”
