Mega Millions jackpot increases to $111 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions jackpot increases to $111 million

The multistate Mega Millions lottery jackpot has grown to $111 million for Friday's game after there was no big winner in the latest drawing.





No tickets matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball in Tuesday night's $92 million drawing.





A total of eight tickets won Mega Million's second prize: 1 from Michigan, 1 from New Jersey, 3 from Ohio, 1 from Virginia, and 2 from Washington.  Each ticket had all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $175,000.





33 tickets matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball, for a $5,000 prize.





The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were two, 23, 24, 35 and 45.  The Mega Ball was 18.





The Texas Megaplier was 3.

"two" was not a winning number; it was "02".

    Yes, the first number was 2, what are you talking about?

      The lottery balls are not "one", "two" etc, but "1", "2"...

        Two = 2 where I come from.  News stories often report numbers under ten using their character definitions so there is no confusion.  Normally I report using the numeric equivalent, but I decided to do it differently this morning.  So shoot me.

          Numerical values up to 10 inclusive should be written out.  If you want to get technical, CO, all our predictions should read something like "one-four-nine-14-36."  And the lottery ping-pong balls should be written out, from one to ten





          Although....since you've got a list of numbers, maybe it is more correct to write 1-4-9-14-36.





          Haha, CO, why did you start this silly argument anyway?

            My English teacher told me to spell out numbers up to one hundred.

              Talk to machines that print out the lottery tickets.
