Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions jackpot raised to $126 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $126 million Saturday.

None of the tickets sold for Friday's $106 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.  The next drawing will be Tuesday.

There were nine second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 2 from Maryland, 2 from New Jersey, 3 from New York and 2 from Virginia.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $175,000.

Also, 46 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number.  Those tickets are each worth $5,000.

The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 5, 31, 33, 35, and 51.  The Mega Ball number was 1.

The Texas Megaplier was 4.

    It seems New York has atleast 1 2nd tier winner every draw.  Yeah I know, New York sells the most amount of MM tickets.  Good for them.
