There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Friday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing will grow to $73 million.
A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Pennsylvania, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.
The ticket is worth $2 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, where for an additional $1 any non-jackpot prize will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.
The numbers drawn Friday were 20, 40, 44, 45, 50 and the Mega number was 24. The estimated jackpot was $62 million.
The drawing was the seventh 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 45 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
