No tickets were sold matching all six numbers in Friday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery, and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing grew to $201 million.

The numbers drawn were 16, 17, 25, 36, 37 and the Mega number was 16. Friday’s jackpot was $187 million.

Three tickets matching five numbers, but missing the Mega number, were sold outside California and are worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The drawing was the 18th 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.
