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 $272 million.
There were two tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. The one sold in South Carolina is worth $3 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 one sold in Michigan is worth $1 million.
The numbers drawn Friday were 26, 28, 29, 39, 49 and the Mega number was 25. The estimated jackpot was $254 million.
The drawing was the 13th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 302,575,350, according to the California Lottery. 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.
