For matching four white balls plus the Mega Ball, 14 tickets won $10,000 each. Both were worth $20,000 each because they also included the optional Megaplier, which was 2X for Tuesday’s drawing.
The jackpot had been rolling since it was last won in Ohio on Dec. 17, 2019.
The next drawing, which takes place on Valentine’s Day, resets to the Mega Millions starting value of $40 million ($28.1 million cash).
