Mega Millions Numbers For 02/18/20: Tuesday Jackpot was $45 Million

The Mega Millions jackpot for 02/18/20 was $45 million. The drawing has been held, and here are the numbers.

  • First Five: 06-12-39-61-70
  • Mega Ball: 04
  • Megaplier: 3x

Tuesday night’s 02/18/20 jackpot was $45 million, with a cash-value option of $31.7 million. The total jackpot could have increased depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing.

The winning numbers on Friday (02/14/20) for the $40 million jackpot were: 10-32-48-54-55 with a Mega Ball of 18. The Megaplier was 5x.

There was grand prize winner from Friday’s drawing, nor was there a ticket that matched the first five white balls for the game’s second prize of $1 million.

There were nine tickets second sold nationwide on Friday that matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize. Four of those purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1 for third-prize winnings of $50,000 each.

The previous Mega Millions grand prize winner was Tuesday 02/11/20 for $202 million with a ticket sold in New Jersey. The previous grand prize winner before that was Tuesday 12/17/19 for $372 million with a ticket sold in Ohio.

Prior to that, a $227 million ticket was sold on 09/24/19 in the city of Cedar Park, Texas—a suburb north of Austin. The winner from nearby Leander came forward to claim that prize, but they wished to remain anonymous.

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.
