$47M Up For Taking In Mega Millions Lottery

Head to a Dana Point or Laguna Niguel store and don't stop to get a ticket for Tuesday night's drawing as no winners were chosen Friday.

 There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in tonight's drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday's drawing will grow to $47 million.

One ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at
Mar-Val Main Street Market in Escalon in San Joaquin County and is worth
$572,376, a California Lottery official announced.

One ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was also sold
in Oregon, Tennessee and West Virginia,  and are each worth $250,000.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a
pari-mutuel basis.

The numbers drawn tonight were 1, 2, 23, 25, 55 and the Mega number was
39. The estimated jackpot was $39 million.

The drawing was the sixth since the last time a ticket with all six
numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in
175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website. The overall chance of
winning a prize is 1 in 40.

The Mega Millions game is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia
and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
