There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing will grow to $175 million.

There were two tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number — one each in Illinois and Maryland. The ticket with five numbers sold in Illinois was to a player who utilized the Megaplier option which made the ticket worth $2 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The ticket with five numbers sold in Maryland is worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Friday were 1, 11, 37, 47, 51 and the Mega number was 6. The estimated jackpot was $161 million.

The drawing was the 12th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the California Lottery. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.

The Mega Millions game is played in 44 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
