Mega Millions winning numbers for 01/02/2018; jackpot $361 million



The Powerball jackpot has now reached $460 million.

The holder of the Mega Millions quick pick ticket has not yet come forward, but was a savvy game player.

The numbers are 1-42-47-64-70 Mega Ball 22 Megaplier 4x. The winning ticket was sold at the 7-Eleven store located at 3101 West Commercial Boulevard in Tamarac.

Lottery officials said the jackpot will grow to an estimated $550 million for Saturday night's drawing, which would make it the eighth largest lottery prize in USA history. The retailer will receive $2,000 for selling the winning ticket.

The estimated $418 million prize, with a cash value of $278 million, will be up for grabs when the next Mega Millions drawing is held on Friday at 11 p.m. ET.

The odds of a single ticket hitting all six numbers in the Powerball are 292 million to 1, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.

The jackpot has been increasing since tickets purchased in MI and Rhode Island shared a $42 million jackpot on October 13.

The Powerball jackpot continues to rise after there was no victor in Wednesday's drawing.

The $550 million prize ranks as the sixth-largest all-time in Powerball jackpots.
