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 $400 million.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at a convenience store in Diamond Bar and is worth $1,561,712, the California Lottery announced.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

Another ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold in Pennsylvania and is worth $1 million, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

The numbers drawn Friday were 8, 19, 53, 61, 69 and the Mega number was 19. The estimated jackpot was $379 million.

The drawing was the 16th 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.
