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 $169 million.

There were two tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced. The one sold in Texas is worth $3 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, where for an additional $1 any non-jackpot prize is multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn.

The one sold in Oklahoma is worth $1 million.

The numbers drawn Tuesday were 2, 38, 55, 57, 65 and the Mega number was 17. The estimated jackpot was $153 million.

The drawing was the ninth 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.
