Mega Millions: Here are the winning numbers for $1.35B jackpot




(NEXSTAR) — Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot is a massive $1.35 billion, the fourth-largest prize in the game’s history and the sixth-largest jackpot in U.S. history. Winning numbers for the August 4 jackpot are: 45, 30, 52, 56 and 11. The Mega ball number is 20. Friday’s Megaplier is 2X.

The winner of the $1.35 billion prize can opt to either have the amount paid over 30 years through an annuity or as an estimated lump sum payout of $659.5 million.

Friday’s jackpot amount is so huge because there have been 30 consecutive drawings without a jackpot winner. The last jackpot win was April 18.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states and the District of Columbia. Tickets are $2 and there are a total of nine ways to win a prize. Drawings are held at 11 p.m. ET Tuesdays and Fridays.

If no one claims Friday’s jackpot, the next Mega Millions drawing is scheduled to be held Tuesday, August 8.
