Friday's winning numbers were: 3, 6, 16, 18 and 58. The Mega Ball: 11 with the 2x Megaplier.

In addition, nearly two million Americans won in the $2 category for hitting the Megapliar number on their ticket. Heading into this latest draw, the Powerball and Powerball Plus jackpots stood at a combined total of R56 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. You can still claim your winnings - provided they're less than $599.50 - in person at any retailer.

To claim a prize of $600 or over, players can choose to mail in their winning ticket or wait until lottery offices reopen. Winners are advised to make copies of the claim form and the winning ticket for their records.
