Mega Millions numbers: Did you win Friday’s $118 million lottery jackpot?

The newest Mega Millions lottery drawing offers another hefty jackpot for someone holding a ticket with the right numbers.

Here are the winning numbers in Friday’s drawing:

01-06-13-18-49; Mega Ball: 08; Megaplier: 2X

The estimated jackpot for the drawing is $118 million. The cash option is about $70 million. If no one wins, the Mega Millions jackpot will get even bigger for the next drawing.

According to the game’s official website, the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers — five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 — or select Easy Pick. A player wins the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.

Jackpot winners choose whether to receive 30 annual payments, each five percent higher than the last, or a lump-sum payment.

Mega Millions drawings are Tuesdays and Fridays and are offered in 44 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each.
