The winning numbers for Friday night’s Mega Million drawing are 23-33-53-56-58 with a Mega Ball number of 6. The jackpot for Friday, Aug. 11, 2017 is a biggie: $393 million. The estimated cash payout is a measly $246.5 million.
The winning ticket was reportedly sold in Palos Heights, Illinois. If you didn’t happen to buy that one and win Friday’s Mega Millions, you don’t have to wait long for another shot. The Powerball jackpot, which will be drawn Saturday night, is also well over $300 million. The jackpot sits at $356 million, with a cash payout of $224 million.
The jackpots have been building for months — the two games have gone a combined 34 straight drawings without a jackpot winner. An Indiana Powerball player won the last big jackpot in February at $435 million, and the biggest Mega Millions win in recent history was a $536 million winner in July 2016. In January, there were three winners for a record-breaking $1.6 billion Powerball payout.
Your odds of winning Mega Millions are slightly better than Powerball, at one in 259 million compared with one in 292 million. Powerball tickets are $2 a pop, and Mega Millions sell for $1.
If you do win, you probably won’t get the full payout, since the prize could be split among more than one jackpot winner. Winners can (and typically do) choose to take the smaller one-time lump-sum payment versus annuity payments spread out over nearly three decades.
Both games are played in 44 states, excluding Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah. The Mega Millions drawing is at 11 p.m. Eastern on Friday; Powerball is at 11 p.m. Saturday.
