Mega Millions Jackpot Grows to $55M

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Tuesday night's drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery, and the estimated jackpot for Friday's drawing will grow to $55 million.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at a gasoline station in Pasadena and is worth $204,087, a California Lottery official announced.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was also sold in Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey and West Virginia. Each are worth $250,000.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

The numbers drawn tonight were 11, 21, 27, 30, 53 and the Mega number was 11. The estimated jackpot was $47 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 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
