Following two single-ticket victories in a row which saw winners in Maine and New York win $1.35 Billion and $20 Million jackpots respectively, no one matched all five numbers in Friday’s drawing, allowing the Jackpot to climb to $31 million with a cash value of $16.5 million for the next drawing. However, while no one took home the jackpot, several other prizes were rewarded after the latest drawing.
The winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on Friday were 20, 29, 31, 64 and 66 with a gold Mega Ball of 17. The Megaplier was 4X.
