LOS ANGELES (CNS) – 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 $445 million.
A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at the Culver City Elks Lodge and is worth $3,135,094, the California Lottery announced.
California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.
Another ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Texas and is worth $2 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 Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.
The numbers drawn Friday were 6, 11, 29, 36, 55 and the Mega number was 21. The estimated jackpot was $410 million.
The drawing was the 20th 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 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.
