No grand prize winners

The winning numbers that were drawn in the Mega Millions lottery on Tuesday were 02, 15, 30, 36 and 63, with 24 being the gold Mega Ball and 2X being the Megaplier.

Unfortunately, no player was able to get all the six numbers right for winning the jackpot, which means that the grand prize will now roll over.

The next drawing of the Mega Millions lottery is scheduled to take place on Friday, February 24th, 2023 and it will now have a jackpot of $126 million that comes with a cash option of $63.9 million.

Smaller wins

There were also nine players who were able to hit the Match 4 and the Mega Ball, which allowed them to win a prize of $10,000 each.

But, there was just one player who was able to hit the Match 4, the Mega Ball and had also bought the Megaplier option, which meant that they were able to increase their winnings to $20,000.
