Mega Millions

On the same day the winners of the $340 million Powerball jackpot came forward to claim their prize, the jackpot in the nation's other multi-state lottery game swelled to $262 million for Friday.

There hasn't been a top winner in the Mega Millions game since September 16th, when a single ticket in New Jersey won $250 million.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $225 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were 26 second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 2 from California, 3 from Georgia, 4 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from Maryland, 1 from Michigan, 5 from New Jersey, 4 from New York, 3 from Texas, and 2 from Virginia.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.  (The California winners will receive $339,129 each.)

Also, 101 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number for a $10,000 prize.  (14 California winners will receive $7,515.) 

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 8, 16, 21, 25, and 27. The Mega Ball number was 16.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.
