Mega Millions jackpot: Desperate search for winners of $297MILLION drawing

A DESPERATE search for winners of Tuesday night's Mega Millions lottery has been launched after the jackpot reached a staggering $297 million.

The winning numbers for yesterday's draw were: 15, 22, 30, 41, and 42. The Megaball drawn was 25 with a Megaplier of 4x.

So far no winners have come forward, and the next estimated jackpot for this Friday's draw currently stands at $319 million.

No one across the country last Friday’s $277 million jackpot. There were also no second prize, $1 million prize winners sold nationally.

The winning numbers for Friday, April 23, were: 04, 28, 29, 30, 60 with a Mega Ball of 25. The Megaplier was 3x.

Twenty-two tickers sold nationwide on Friday matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize.

Six of those purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1, which made their third-prize winnings worth $30,000.

The last grand prize jackpot winner came from a ticket in New York back on February 16, landing a sum of $96 million.

It was the second grand-prize ticket sold this calendar year after a ticket sold in Michigan back in January for $1.05 billion – the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

Across 2020, there was only five Mega Millions jackpot winners.

The largest win came on June 9 when one player from Arizona snagged $410 million.

Other winners—dating back to 2019—were a $372 million ticket sold in Ohio and a $227 million ticket that was sold in Cedar Park, Texas.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery that takes place every Tuesday and Friday night, and is one of the country's largest jackpot games.

Mega Millions jackpots start at $20 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier.
