Also on Friday night, four tickets matched the five white balls to win the game’s second prize. One, sold in Ohio, is worth $3 million because it included the optional Megaplier, which was 3X Friday night. The other three Match 5 winning tickets, worth $1 million each, were sold in Mississippi, New York and Texas.
The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won at $108 million in Arizona on Oct. 22. There were more than 16.2 million prizes won at all levels in this 28-drawing jackpot run, including 39 second tier prizes of $1 million or more, lottery officials say.
Those big second prizes were won in 19 different states across the country: California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee and Texas.
The jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday, Feb. 1, resets to its current starting value of $20 million.
