Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Tuesday’s $86M Mega Millions drawing? Results, winning numbers (10/20/2020)

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $86 million with a cash option of $66.6 million.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 46, 54, 57, 58 and 66. The Mega Ball drawn was 10 with a Megaplier of 3X.

No one hit the jackpot, nor were there any second-prize, $1 million tickets sold across the country, according to MegaMillions.com.

No one across the country hit Friday’s $77 million drawing. There were second-prize $1 million tickets bought in Florida and Oregon. Each matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball.

In New Jersey, a third-prize, $10,000 ticket sold at R & R Fuel Inc. on Hudson Avenue in Union City matched four numbers plus the Mega Ball.

Friday’s winning numbers were: 27, 32, 50, 52 and 57. The Mega Ball drawn was 12 with a Megaplier of 5X.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 each and in New Jersey must be bought by 10:45 p.m. on the evening of the drawing. The odds of a ticket hitting the jackpot by matching five numbers and the Mega Ball are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 shot to win the second prize of at least $1 million by matching five numbers.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The New Jersey Lottery office in Lawrence reopened last month to the public by appointment. You can still claim your winnings — provided they’re less than $599.50 — in person at any retailer.

The lottery is also accepting mailed claims, though officials warn payments might be temporarily delayed. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.

The drawing comes during a string of big lottery wins in the state. Last week, a Grand Rapids woman claimed a $5 million prize that she only realized she’d won by scrolling through Facebook.

That same week a Washtenaw County man expected to only win $20 playing an instant game, but was shocked to learn he won $1 million.

That win came around the same time a Wayne County man won $2 million playing an instant ticket on Thanksgiving. The man says he has plenty to be thankful for now and will use the money to help family and charity.

The last players from Michigan to win a Mega Millions or Powerball jackpot were a couple from Suttons Bay who came forward to claim an $80 million Powerball win. That couple plans on using the money to support their family of seven kids and 21 grandkids.

And while they were lucky winners, it’s smart for players to check their tickets immediately as a winner worth $1 million sold in Hartland last year went unclaimed. The ticket was purchased at the Speedway in Hartland, but the winner never came forward to claim the prize. The money instead went to the state’s School Aid Fund.

If you’d like to be the next player from Michigan to win a huge lottery prize, take a look at these tips from lottery expert Richard Lustig. The author of “Learn How To Increase Your Chances Of Winning The Lottery” has won more than $1 million in Florida by winning top jackpot prizes in smaller games.
