Mega Millions: $241M Mega Millions jackpot, A man holds a bundle of Mega Millions lottery tickets that he just purchased March 6, 2007 in San Francisco, California. The lottery jackpot was up to $370 million for tonight’s drawing, which will take place in New York’s Times Square instead of the usual drawing location in Atlanta.
Nobody won the California Lottery’s MEGA Millions jackpot on Friday, so Tuesday’s jackpot grows to $241 million, the biggest pot so far this year.
Three MEGA Millions tickets sold in California matched five out of six numbers in Friday night’s draw and are worth $326,163 each.
The tickets were sold in Santa Ysabel, Nipomo and Los Angeles.
In 2005, the first year California joined Mega millions, one ticket hit and a lucky Golden State resident won more than $300 million.
The tickets matched the numbers 43, 51, 53, 29, and 28, missing only the Mega number of 7.
Winners have 180 days from the date of the draw to claim prizes.
MEGA Millions is a multistate game, played in California and 43 other jurisdictions (41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands).
Players pick five numbers from 1 to 56 plus a Mega number from 1 to 46. Draw times are Tuesdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. PST.
