Friday's Mega Millions winning numbers are worth $32,000,000. Granted, matching all six Mega Millions numbers tonight won't put $99,000,000 in your bank account like the Jefferson, Ohio, lottery winners did earlier this month.
Unfortunately, the August 19th Mega Millions jackpot doesn't even come close to the $228,900,000 grand prize that Powerball winners Tom and Kathleen Morris won last week. Winning a lottery prize of $32,000,000 is nothing to sneeze at, either. You never know; the next multimillionaire could be you. Here's betting you'll be plenty happy with a measly $32 million!
