Mega Millions lottery: Did you win Tuesday’s $75M Powerball drawing? Winning numbers, live results (2/22/22) – NJ.com

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday’s lottery drawing has jumped to an estimated $75 million with a cash option of $50.1 million.
The winning numbers were 6, 17, 22, 57 and 62. The Mega Ball drawn was 3 with a Megaplier of 3x.
While no one across the country hit the $64 million jackpot, a second-prize, $1 million ticket was sold in Washington state. It matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball.
In New Jersey, three of the 14 tickets that matched four numbers were bought with the Megaplier option for an extra $1 and are worth $2,000 each. The other 11 are valued at $500 each.
Friday’s winning numbers were 6, 11, 50, 63, and 68. The Mega Ball drawn was 17 with a Megaplier of 4X.
The odds of a $2 ticket matching all the winning numbers are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 chance of a ticket matching five numbers but not the Mega Ball and winning at least $1 million.
The game is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
New Jersey Lottery offices in Lawrence are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. if players prefer to drop off claims and validate winning tickets in person. Claims can be left in a secure drop box at lottery headquarters. That option applies to prizes worth more than $599.50.
If a player wins a prize of $25,000 or more (or would otherwise prefer to submit a claim in person) appointments can still be made to meet with a lottery representative in person by calling 1-800-222-0996.
Prizes valued at $599.50 or less should still be claimed at lottery retailers.
