Mega Millions

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery drawing was raised to $111 million.

The rollover occurred because none of the tickets sold for Tuesday night's $06 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball number. The next drawing will be Friday night.

There were 6 second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 1 from California, 1 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from New Jersey, 1 from New York, and 1 from Ohio. Each second prize ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 apiece, except for California winner, who will get $570,109.

Unlike the other eleven Mega Millions states, California has pari-mutuel payouts at every prize level, so winners are paid an amount based on ticket sales and number of winners.

Sometimes that results in prizes lower than the other Mega Millions states, but Tuesday night that meant one lucky California lottery player will get more than double the standard second-prize amount.

Also, 32 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000, except for California tickets, which are worth $8,258 each.

The winning numbers from Tuesday night's drawing were: 2, 11, 22, 51, and 52. The Mega Ball number was 46.

The Texas Megaplier was 2.
