Feeling lucky? Grab your tickets and see if you're the latest lottery winner! The Mega Millions winning lottery numbers for Jan. 31, 2014, were 3, 9, 13, 47, 52, the Mega Ball was 8, and the Megaplier was X 4, New Jersey Lottery officials announced late Friday evening. The Mega Millions results were revealed at 11 p.m.
The Friday, Jan. 31 Mega Millions numbers were posted just moments after the drawing, and at the time it was still too early to predict a Mega Millions jackpot winner. As of early Saturday morning, Feb. 1, it was announced there were no jackpot winners, and the estimated grand prize amount would rise to $94 million for the next drawing on Tuesday, Feb. 4.
The Mega Millions jackpot was at an estimated $84 million if taken over 30 years, or $46 million in cash. Both options were before state and federal taxes were deducted. There were tens of thousands of high-tier lottery winners with prizes ranging from $1 to $1 million, including one Match 5 + 0 Florida Mega Millions winner who purchased a winning ticket worth $1 million. The Florida Lottery winner matched five out of six white Mega Millions winning numbers, missing only the gold Mega Ball for the jackpot.
The last Mega Millions jackpot winner was back on Friday, Jan. 3, when Tennessee lottery winners Tina and Jonathan Still matched all six Mega Millions winning numbers and won the $61 million jackpot.
