The Nov. 19 Mega Millions numbers were 14-15-29-49-63, with a Gold Mega Ball of 2 and a Megaplier of 3. The drawing uses the new matrix for Mega Millions, according to Lottery officials.

The Mega Millions lottery made changes to its game that began with the Oct. 22 drawing, in a move designed by lottery officials to produce more winners and larger jackpots. The drawings now consist of five white balls and one gold Mega Ball. Also, a new matrix incorporates an increase in white balls from 56 to 75, with fewer gold balls.

According to the Mega Millions official website, two tickets purchased matched five numbers, netting $1 million each. The tickets were bought in Georgia and Massachusetts.

Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. The next drawing is Nov. 22.

Earlier this month, 68-year-old Carlo Mitchell, a retired nuclear medicine technician from Fresno, Calif., won the $213 million Powerball jackpot.
