One ticket matched all six winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing to win the estimated $64 million jackpot, according to lottery officials.
The sump-sum cash value of the jackpot was $41.8 Million.
The winning ticket was purchased in Kings County, New York. The winning numbers were 5, 14, 17, 19 and 24 and the Mega Ball number was 25. The Megaplier was 4.
In addition to the lucky jackpot winner, 16 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers but not the Mega Ball for a $250,000 second-prize: 1 from Arkansas, 4 from California, 1 from Connecticut, 1 from Kansas, 1 from New Jersey, 3 from New York, 2 from North Carolina, 2 from Ohio, and 1 from Texas.
The California second-prize winners will each receive $58,360 instead of the $250,000 second-prize winners in other states will receive. That's because California awards all lottery prizes using a pari-mutuel method that calculates the prize amount based on the amount wagered combined with the number of winners.
A listing of California pari-mutuel prize amounts for all prize levels, for this drawing and all previous Mega Millions drawings, is available at USA Mega (www.usamega.com).
The multi-state Mega Millions lottery numbers are drawn every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. Mega Millions is available to play in 41 states plus the District of Columbia.
In other multi-state lottery news, the jackpot for tonight's Powerball drawing is $190 million.
Powerball is available in 42 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held Wednesday and Saturday nights at 10:59 p.m. The winning numbers are published at USA Mega.
