Mega Millions Numbers For 12/29/20, Tuesday Jackpot was $376 Million

The Mega Millions jackpot for 12/29/20 was worth $376 million, and here are the winning numbers from Tuesday night’s drawing.

  • First Five: 01-31-35-48-62
  • Mega Ball: 19
  • Megaplier: 3x

Tuesday night’s 12/29/20 jackpot was worth $376 million, with a cash-value option of $287.4 million. The total jackpot could increase depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing. This is the second-largest jackpot of the 2020 calendar year.

The winning numbers on Friday (12/25/20) for the $352 million jackpot were: 17-23-36-69-70 with a Mega Ball of 19. The Megaplier was 2x.

There was no grand prize winner from Friday’s drawing, but there were three tickets sold—one each in New Hampshire, New York and Texas—that matched the first five white balls, and minus the gold Mega Ball, for the game’s second prize of $1 million. Had they purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1, their second prize would have been worth $2 million.

There were 17 tickets sold nationwide on Friday that matched four of the five white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize. Two of those purchased the Megaplier for an extra $1, which made their third-prize winnings worth $20,000.

The last grand prize jackpot winner was from a ticket sold in Wisconsin on 09/15/20 for a jackpot worth $119 million. It was only the fifth Mega Millions jackpot won in the 2020 calendar year.

Here are the five Mega Millions jackpots won in 2020:
