The latest Mega Millions jackpot will continue to grow following the Friday night lottery drawing, which did not result in any winners for the $360 million grand prize. However, there were three players who walked away instant millionaires.

The winning Mega Millions numbers drawn on Friday, July 1 were 1, 27, 29, 38, 62, with a gold Mega Ball of 12. The Megaplier was 3X.

There were no grand prize winners for the Friday night drawing of $360 million with a cash value of $207.6 million, which means the jackpot went unclaimed. 

The next Mega Millions drawing, which will be worth an estimated $370 million with a cash option of $213.3 million, will be drawn on Tuesday, July 5. 

Following the latest lottery drawing, a player from Arkansas, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, hit the Match 5 and won $1 million each. 

If the players would have matched five numbers with a Megaplier purchase, they would have won $3 million each.

Aside from the instant millionaires of the night, there were several smaller monetary prizes. There were 22 Match 4 plus gold Mega Ball winners that walked away with $10,000 apiece following the latest drawing.

However, five people hit the Match 4 plus gold Mega Ball with the Megaplier and won a $30,000 prize. Other wins from the night ranged between $2 and $1,500.

The Mega Millions jackpot has continued to roll since it was last claimed on April 15, when a player from Tennessee matched all five white balls 1, 27, 29, 38, and 62, and the gold Mega Ball 12.

Since the last jackpot was claimed, there have been more than 11.2 million winning tickets at all prize levels.

Jackpot winners can receive their grand prize winnings through either a one-time lump sum payment or an annuity. Those who opt for the annuity receive one immediate payment, followed by 29 annual payments that increase by 5% each year. 

Mega Millions can be played in 45 states as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
