Friday Jackpot was $40 Million

The Mega Millions jackpot for Valentines Day 02/14/20 was $40 million. There was a winner earlier this week for the previous jackpot of $202 million, and Friday’s game reset to the $40 million minimum.

  • First Five: 10-32-48-54-55
  • Mega Ball: 18
  • Megaplier: 5x

Tonight’s 02/14/20 jackpot was $40 million, with a cash-value option of $28.1 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 (02/11/20) for the $202 million jackpot were: 04-06-32-52-64 with a Mega Ball of 06. The Megaplier was 2x.

There was a single grand prize winner from a ticket sold in New Jersey for Tuesday’s drawing, which had a cash option of $142 million. In addition, there was one ticket sold in West Virginia that matched the first five white balls for the game’s second prize of $1 million.

There were 14 tickets that matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize. Two of those purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1 for third-prize winnings of $20,000.

The previous Mega Millions grand prize winner 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.
