February 19, 2024 – The Mega Millions® jackpot keeps rolling along! No ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 19, 23, 39, 42, 67 plus the gold Mega Ball 18.

So the big prize rolls to an estimated $493 million ($ 231.1 million cash) for the next drawing on Tuesday, February 20, 2024.

Mega Millions® drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 pm ET. Five white balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 70; one gold Mega Ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 25. You win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date. There are nine ways to win a prize, from $2 to the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing. Overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 24.
