Mega Millions Winning Numbers: How To Claim Friday's $243 Million Jackpot?

Jeremy Schiffres — Daily Freeman file

The Powerball jackpot Saturday is estimated to be $321 million, with a cash option of $189 million, and the Mega Millions jackpot Friday is an estimated $243 million, with a cash prize of $143.8 million, the statement said. Three winning tickets were sold for that drawing, including one in bought in New Jersey by Englishtown couple Jorge and Joanne Lopes. A single winning ticket worth $559.7 million was sold in New Hampshire.

Pick 3 winners receive $500 for a $1 straight bet and the odds of winning are 1-in-1,000.

Mega Millions jackpots also start at $40 million and roll over until the jackpot is won. No one across the country won the second prize of at least $1 million in the drawing.

Tickets are $2 each for both games.

The odds of buying a $1 million ticket are one in 12 million, which means that chances of winning the jackpot are lower. Nevertheless, there are states which tend to go a little overboard with their love of lotteries more than other states.

The average American spends about $200 a year on lottery tickets, though residents of some states spend far more. However, at the same time, Mega Ball numbers were increased from 15 to 25, NJ.com reported.
