Mega Millions

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery has grown to $56 million for Friday's drawing.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday night's $42 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.

There were eight second-prize winners: 1 from California, 1 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 2 from Michigan, 1 from New York, and 1 from Washington.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.

The California second-prize winners will each receive $215,721, because California awards prizes based on the number of winners and the amount of sales, rather than the fixed prize amounts offered by the other Mega Millions states. 

Also, 36 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.  In California those tickets are worth $14,708.

The winning numbers were 27, 28, 30, 42 and 50. The Mega Ball number was 22.

The Texas Megaplier was 4.
