MILWAUKEE — Check your tickets! The winning numbers from the Friday, August 11th Mega Millions drawing were 23, 33, 53, 56, 58, Mega Ball 6.

Lottery players have a chance to win the Mega Millions jackpot of $393 million in the Friday drawing, which comes to an estimated $246.5 million cash payout.

Tickets must be purchased by 9:00 p.m. to be included in the Friday, August 11 drawing:

  • Each ticket costs $1 per play
  • Choose five different numbers 1 to 75 and one Mega Ball number 1 to 15
  • Sign your ticket and check it as soon as possible to avoid missing out on any prize you may have won

While the jackpot gets the most attention, there are other prizes to be won in Mega Millions.  Prizes range from $1 for matching just the Mega Ball to $1 million for matching all five numbers (but not the Mega Ball).  For an extra $1 per play, you can choose Megaplier to increase your non-jackpot winnings which will be multiplied by the drawing’s Megaplier number.  For example, if your prize is $1 million and the Megaplier number is 5, you win $5 million just by adding Megaplier.
