Last Friday (04/23/21), the $277 million prize-winning numbers were: 04-28-29-30-60 with a Mega Ball of 25. The Megaplier was 3x.
There was no grand reward winner from Friday’s drawing, nor existed any tickets offered that matched the very first 5 white balls, and minus the gold Mega Ball, for the game’s second prize.
Lottery agents offered 22 tickets nationwide on Friday that matched 4 of the 5 white balls and the Mega Ball for the $10,000 3rd prize. Six of those bought the Megaplier for an extra $1, making their third-prize winnings worth $30,000.
