The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery game has grown to a near-record $310 million.
None of the tickets sold for Friday's $262 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Tuesday. Drawing results will be displayed at www.usamega.com shortly after 11:00 PM Eastern Time Tuesday.
There were 12 second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 2 from California, 1 from Georgia, 2 from Illinois, 1 from Maryland, 1 from Michigan, 1 from New Jersey, 2 from New York, 1 from Ohio, and 1 from Virginia. Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000. (The California players won $236,204 each, because of California's pari-mutuel prize payout structure.)
Also, 103 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000 (California 4+1 winners will get $10,736.)
The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 9, 14, 34, 50, and 51. The Mega Ball number was 40.
The Texas Megaplier was 4.
