The Mega Millions lottery has been kind to at least a few players recently. Several people have managed to win the Match 5 prize of $1 million and even multiply that with the Megaplier. Additionally, one player finally took home a jackpot of more than $200 million after the grand prize eluded players for months.

Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing did not produce many stories of that caliber.

The winning numbers to start the weekend were 4, 9, 42, 62 and 68, with a gold ball number of 7. There was a large 4X Megaplier in play, so players could potentially quadruple their earnings. Unfortunately for those who played, money needs to be earned before it can be multiplied.

Nobody won the $45 million jackpot, which is normal. However, not a single Mega Millions player won the Match 5 prize, either. Players could potentially earn $1 million or $4 million with the Megaplier, but it was not to be on Friday night.

In total, only eight people won $10,000 and none of them won $40,000 with the Megaplier. It was a barren night for Mega Millions players, in general. Since nobody won the jackpot, it increased to $50 million for next Tuesday’s drawing.
