Mega Millions Numbers For 10/18/19: Friday Jackpot is $71 Million

The Mega Millions jackpot for 10/18/19 is $71 million, and the drawing has been held Friday night. Here are the numbers.

First Five: 18-58-60-65-67

Tonight’s 10/18/19 jackpot is $71 million, with a cash-value option of $48.8 million. The total jackpot could have increased depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing.

The numbers on Tuesday (10/15/19) were: 04-12-14-35-70 with a Mega Ball of 02. The Megaplier was 2x.

There was no grand prize winner on Tuesday, nor were there any tickets sold that matched the first five white balls for the second-prize of $1 million.

There were nine tickets that matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize. One of those purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1 for third-prize winnings of $20,000.

The last Mega Millions grand prize winner was for $227 million on 09/24/19with a ticket purchased in the city of Cedar Park, Texas—a suburb north of Austin.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery every Tuesday and Friday night, and it is one of America’s two biggest lottery jackpot games. Mega Millions jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2 per line, and odds of winning with a $2 Mega Millions ticket are one in 303 million. For more information on Mega Millions, or to check your past numbers, visit its website.
