Mega Millions Numbers Drawn for 3rd Biggest Jackpot Ever

The numbers were drawn on Friday night for the estimated Mega Millions jackpot, which drew $660 million, making it the game’s third-biggest prize to date.

The winning numbers were 60-66-14-40-64 and the megaball 16.

Friday’s jackpot would be the ninth-largest in US history, including the top Powerball winners.

The Mega Millions jackpot was last won on April 15, with a winning ticket in Tennessee claiming $20 million.

There have been no jackpot winners in 27 straight draws since then, with the grand prize dropping from $20 million to around $555 million on Tuesday. Interest in the lotto brought Friday’s grand prize to around $660 million, before taxes.

The winner could choose to be paid in one immediate payment, then in 29 annual installments. Or, the lump sum cash option for the draw is estimated at $376.9 million.
