For the sixth time in eleven weeks the Mega Millions jackpot was won, this time for $31 million.
The string of winning jackpots is great for those who prefer to spread the wealth, but disappointing for huge jackpot hunters.
Not that $31 million is a small sum of money, but it's not what the inventors of Mega Millions envisioned when they constructed the game with 176 million-to-1 odds of winning.
The other Mega Millions jackpots recently won include:
Lottery officials said the winning ticket from Tuesday night's drawing was sold in the New York City borough of Queens.
In addition to the grand prize winner, two players matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball number. They will receive second prizes of $250,000 each.
Another 17 players matched four numbers, plus the Mega Ball number, good for third prizes of $10,000 each.
The winning numbers from Tuesday night's drawing were: 14, 29, 32, 43 and 49. The Mega Ball number was 14.
