Mega Millions: $540 million jackpot-winning ticket sold in Indiana


One jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing, a lottery official said.

Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty told the Associated Press the winning ticket was sold in Indiana.

The consortium of lottery organizations that runs Mega Millions said a ticket matching all five white balls and the yellow ball would win an estimated $540 million.


The winning Mega Millions numbers are white balls 8-19-20-55-73 and yellow ball 5.

An estimated $1 billion in tickets have been sold since the last jackpot-winning ticket was drawn in early March. This is the longest Mega Millions run without a winner.

Tickets are sold in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
