Mega Millions jackpot rises to $400 million for Friday; California tickets win big

No one matched all six balls on Tuesday night so the Mega Millions jackpot will rise to an estimated $400 million, according to the Mega Millions website.

The cash option will be $231.7 million for Friday night’s drawing.

The Mega Millions numbers drawn on Tuesday, July 5, 2022 were: 27 – 31 – 50 – 51 – 61 and Megaball 21. The Megaplier was 4x. The jackpot was $370 million.

Two tickets sold in California matched all five white balls to win $492,603 each, according to the California Lottery. The tickets were sold at a Chevron in Riverside and the other at the Central Market in San Fernando.

The Mega Millions has not been won since April 15 when a ticket sold in Tennessee won $20 million – it was the second time in two drawings the jackpot was won.

Mega Millions drawings are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. You can play the game in 45 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
