Mega Millions numbers: Did you win Friday’s $420 million lottery jackpot?

The latest Mega Millions drawing sports a jackpot that’s grown to one of the biggest lottery payouts ever.

Here are the winning numbers in Friday’s drawing:

27-28-32-41-69; Mega Ball: 12; Megaplier: 2X

The estimated jackpot for the drawing is $420 million. The cash option is about $237 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.
