The Mega Millions® jackpot is heating up along with summer temperatures, as the largest prize since late January is on tap for Tuesday, July 5 – an estimated $370 million ($213.3 million cash)! The jackpot rolled after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 1, 27, 29, 38 and 62, plus the gold Mega Ball 12. The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won at $20 million in Tennessee on April 15.
While the jackpot rolled, there were plenty of other winners in the July 1 drawing – a total of 821,870 winning tickets at all prize levels. Three tickets, one each in Arkansas, Georgia and Pennsylvania, matched the five white balls to win the second-tier prize of $1 million.
Twenty-two tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball to win the game’s third prize. Five of those are worth $30,000 each because they also included the optional Megaplier (a $1 extra purchase available in most states), which was 3X Friday night. The other 17 third-prize tickets win $10,000 each.
Since the jackpot was last won in Tennessee on April 15, there have been more than 11.2 million winning tickets at all prize levels, including 19 worth $1 million or more. Those big prizes have been won in 13 states across the country: Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia.
Before the most recent Tennessee win, three other jackpots have been won to date in 2022. It all started with a $426 million prize in California on January 28, followed by $128 million in New York on March 8 and $110 million in Minnesota on April 12.
