Mega Millions jackpot climbs to $376M; four tickets win millions



No one won the Mega Millions on Tuesday night so the jackpot will rise to an estimated $376 million for Friday night’s drawing, according to the lottery website. 

The cash option will be $256.4 million.

While no one won Tuesday’s $347 million grand prize, four tickets matched all five white balls to win million-dollar prizes.

Three tickets sold in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Texas had the Megaplier to each win $4 million and one ticket sold in Maryland took home $1 million.

The winning numbers drawn on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022 were: 4 – 19 – 39 – 42 – 52 and Megaball 9. The Megaplier was 4x.
