The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday 05/24/22 is worth $143 million, with a cash value option worth $83.6 million. The total jackpot could increase depending on the number of tickets sold nationwide before the draw.

The winning numbers last Friday (5/20/22) for the $131 million jackpot were: 33-40-59-60-69 with a Mega Ball of 22. The Megaplier was 3x.

There was no grand prize winner on Friday, but there was a ticket sold that matched the first five white balls, minus the gold Mega Ball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million. If they had bought the Megaplier for $1 more, their second prize would have been worth $3 million.

There were 10 tickets sold nationwide on Friday that matched four of the five white balls plus the Mega Ball for the third prize of $10,000. Three of them bought the Megaplier for an extra $1, making their third prize wins worth $30,000 each.
