Mega Millions lottery jackpot leaps to $138 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot leaps to $138 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery has grown to $138 million, the largest Mega Millions jackpot in a month.

None of the tickets sold for Friday's $117 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: 1 from California, 3 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 2 from New York, and 1 from Washington.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.

The California second prize winner will receive $318,010 because California does not have fixed prize amounts like the other Mega Millions states.

Also, 59 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000, except in California, where those tickets are worth $9,636.

The winning numbers from Friday's drawing were: 4, 7, 19, 50, and 52. The Mega Ball number was 15.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.

    my best too, hit 1 plus mega ball,  I'm $3. richer.  I've been playing the same number for the longest time, and in the last 6 drawing, all my numbers came up just not on the same ticket, including mega ball.  Frustrating as all hell.

          Sassy, I'm interested in buying a book of $10 GA scratch off  tickets ( $200 Million Spectacular ). I saw where you said you had done this before .

          Did you find that it was worth it or was it an exercise in futility ?

          Not to mention that's a lot of graphite on the floor and carpal scratcher syndrome......( CSS )

              DD,

              When I scratched off 2 seperate books of the same tickets  ( 200 Mill Spect )  I did get 95% of the money back, But nothing that brought me out over the top.... Now on the other hand .. the older woman that comes into the store by my house buys them by the book often. She has 3 times that I know of hit 1,000 and 500 2 times. So on that note I think that its safe to say that you will get majority of the money back ( But cant Guar of course) But I do it  just because them hitters are out there some where and my logic is this.....  what ya gonna do when you only by 20 of them and then turn around and the next ticket was a million hitter. So I would say as long as if you can afford to loose HALF of what you put in then go for it!  Like I had said I did get most of my money back both times!! Cheers

                Thanks..

                I know what you mean. I am a dedicated scratcher and will buy certain tickets and scratch them in the store and try to keep on top of the particular roll of tickets as best I can while there.

                I look at it like a slot machine. If I feed it and don't win, I have to completely leave the area so I will not know if the next person hits.....

                I have made friends with one of the cashiers where I get my tickets ( I give her tips all the time when I hit decently), so she helps steer me in the right direction.

                  Hi Sassy....

                  I cannot remember if I said this before, but your Office Pool agreement is excellent and quite impressive.
