$1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in Michigan
While there was no winner of the Mega Millions jackpot during the Friday night drawing, a player from Michigan was one of eight players to win $1 million.
Eight winners matched five numbers in California, Florida, Michigan, two in New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin.
It’s unknown where the ticket was sold in Michigan.
The jackpot continues to roll after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn — 3, 11, 12, 38 and 43, plus the gold Mega Ball 15.
Now, an estimated $850 million jackpot ($628.2 million cash) will be offered next Tuesday — the second-largest prize in the game’s history.
Lottery officials warn as the jackpot grows, players should be aware in an uptick in scam attempts.
“There are no random awards of million-dollar prizes and/or merchandise through social media sites or apps, or via phone calls, texts and emails. There are no international sweepstakes or awards. Importantly, no representative of Mega Millions would ever contact individuals to advise them of a prize. If you haven’t purchased a ticket, you haven’t won Mega Millions,” Lottery officials said in a press release.
“And remember, you never have to pay a fee to claim a real lottery prize!”
More than $500,000 in unclaimed Michigan lottery prizes will begin slipping away next week, as tickets purchased from January through May 2020 close in on the last dates their winnings can be claimed.Eight winners matched five numbers including one in Michigan

The $1 million Mega Millions ticket sold in New Jersey for Tuesday’s $625 million drawing was purchased at a convenience store in Hudson County.

It was one of nine second-prize tickets sold around the country. No one hit the jackpot, pushing the top prize for Friday to an estimated $750 million with a cash option of $550.6 million. The jackpot will likely climb higher due to brisk sales.
If someone wins, it would be the second-largest Mega Millions prize and at least the fifth-largest in U.S. lottery history.
