Mega Millions host John Crow calls wrong Mega Ball number in Tuesday’s drawing; lottery pauses payouts

NEW YORK – Mega Millions has temporarily suspended prize payments after the host dialed the wrong number during Tuesday night’s draw.

Lottery officials said John Crowe mistakenly called the golden Mega Ball 6 when it was actually 9. The jackpot was about $ 86 million with a cash cap of $ 49.1 million, according to Mega Millions.

Players are advised to keep their tickets until the problem is resolved.

“Ball 9 was dragged into the room and is the official result. The results of the draw were checked by the Preston CPA. The official results for the draw on May 10, 2022 … are the white balls 15, 19, 20, 61 and 70, “We apologize for the confusion,” the officials said in a statement.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states plus the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the game website.
