Mega Millions, 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 Friday’s drawing will grow to $60 million.
Five tickets — two each sold in California and Iowa and one in South Carolina — had five numbers, but didn’t have the Mega number.
The two sold in California are each worth $114,403 and the ones sold in Iowa and South Carolina $250,000 each, a California Lottery official announced today. California law requires most major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.
The numbers drawn Tuesday night were 3, 15, 31, 36, 53 and the Mega number was 27. The estimated jackpot was $50 million.
The drawing was the sixth 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 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 40.
The Mega Millions game is played in 41 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
