One lucky lottery player in New York is a million dollars richer after hitting the Mega Millions.

A ticket sold in the Empire State, matched all five numbers to win the second-place prize of a million bucks. The winning numbers from Friday, March 15 were:

13-25-50-51-66 +6

Since no one hit all five numbers and the Mega Ball, the jackpot is now up to an estimated $875 million, the sixth highest in history. The cash payout would be a little over $413 million for the next drawing on Tuesday, March 19.

Don't Fall For Lottery Scams

Several lottery scams are going around you should be aware of. They have different names but all have the same intent - promising big prizes in official-looking emails or texts if certain fees are paid.

There is no “Mega Millions sweepstake international lottery program,” no “Mega Million Jackpot Winners List,” and no “Mega Millions International Lottery.”

Only Way to Win is to Buy a Ticket
