Didn’t win Mega Millions? Nobody else did either as jackpot is now $277 million

Once again, there were no jackpot winners in the ever growing Mega Millions jackpot after Tuesday night’s drawing.

The Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday, April 20, produced 23 players that matched four of the five white balls drawn making each ticket worth $500. Three of those tickets were purchased with the Megaplier option, multiplying the prizes to $1,500. Moreover, 38,854 other New Jersey players took home $164,924 in prizes ranging from $2 to $600. The winning numbers for the Tuesday, April 20, drawing were: 06, 23, 43, 49, and 52. The Gold Mega Ball was 05, and the Megaplier Multiplier was 03.

The next drawing will be held Friday, April 23, at 11:00 pm. All New Jersey Lottery Mega Millions tickets must be purchased before 10:45 pm to participate in the drawing. Mega Millions tickets cost just two dollars; by adding the Megaplier option for an extra dollar per play, players can increase their non-jackpot winnings up to five times. Mega Millions tickets are sold in 46 participating jurisdictions. Drawings are held on Tuesdays and Fridays.
