There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Tuesday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Friday’s drawing will grow to $166 million.

There were three tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in South Carolina and is worth $3 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.

There were two tickets sold in Texas with five numbers, but missing the Mega number. They are each worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Tuesday were 2, 35, 36, 54, 64 and the Mega number was 11. The estimated jackpot was $153 million.

The drawing was the 14th 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.
