Mega Millions $421M jackpot won, ticket sold in California

We have a winner!

A ticket in California claimed Mega Millions’ $421 million jackpot following Friday night’s drawing. The winning numbers were 3, 16, 25, 44, 55 and 13.

The multi-million dollar ticket was purchased at a Chevron gas station outside of Los Angeles, according to the California lottery. It is the 13th largest jackpot in Mega Millions history.

“It’s a MEGA good Friday for California!” the lottery teased on Twitter after the drawing.

The winner, who has yet to be revealed, will have a $289.5 million cash option.

Four ticket holders matched all five white balls to win 1 million dollars, narrowly missing the jackpot. The tickets were sold in Mississippi, New York, Ohio and Texas.

The Match 5 winner from Ohio hit the megaplier and will receive an additional $3 million.

Mega Millions went three months without a jackpot winner. In October, an Arizona family won the $108 million.

The latest drawing is the first time Mega Millions surpassed the $420 million mark since a $431 million ticket was sold at a New York pizzeria.

The next Mega Millions will revert to $20 million with the next drawing scheduled for Feb. 1.
