LOS ANGELES – There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing will grow to $31 million.
One ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Tennessee, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game. It is worth $4 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, where for an additional $1 any non-jackpot prize is multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.
The numbers drawn Friday were 20, 29, 31, 64, 66 and the Mega number was 17. The estimated jackpot was $20 million.
The drawing was the first since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.
The Mega Millions game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
