The drawing that took place on August 26th saw no winners, so the Mega Millions jackpot winning total has climbed all the way to $84 million, from the previous $76 million. This time, a single game winner from Tuesday’s game has the chance to walk away with a $58 million cash option.
Here are the winning numbers for the August 30th drawing: 10, 11, 31, 41, 44. Gold Mega Ball number: 14. Megaplier: 2.
Though nobody claimed the Mega Millions grand jackpot, three winning players now have the pleasure of collecting $1 million each by matching all five white numbers correctly.
The three $1 million winners are from Michigan, Maryland, and California. As a matter of fact, one of them managed to successfully match the Megaplier, which effectively increases their winnings to $2 million. Apart from that, 452,834 people managed to win at least $2, so congratulations to the winners!
