Mega Millions lottery jackpot increased to $47 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot increased to $47 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery game has grown to $47 million for Friday's drawing.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday night's $36 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.

There were five second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 1 from California, 1 from Michigan, 1 from New York, and 2 from Ohio.  Each ticket, matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000.

The California second-prize winner will receive $591,264 because the California Lottery does not award the fixed prize amounts used by the other Mega Millions states.

Also, 17 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.  The California tickets matching that prize level are worth $19,701.

The winning numbers were 2, 13, 28, 34 and 45. The Mega Ball number was 36.

The Texas Megaplier was 4.

Congratulations to 2nd prize winners especially the CA winner taking home almost $600K.

    $600,000 for second prize is nice! I wonder if other MM states would consider not having fixed 2nd prize wins or would that cause too many problems?

      Okay can someone explain to me how CA is not on the fixed amount for the second prize?  I'm just curiuos.  I thought all the games were the same in all the states that participate in MM.  I mean 600k is a nice amoun of money!!! 

       Do any of the Power Ball states do that with their second prize?  I'm just curious.

        Cali is a pari-mutual state. They made this arrangement when they joined  Mega Millions last year.

        Sometimes, this works in reverse- We have seen 5 of 6 pay as much as $800K or as little as $ 50K, but it is all pari mutual based.

        Perhaps you can log on to the California lottery website for a better explanation.

          So I am guessing since CA entered into a parimutual agreement when joining MM, that the odds that other MM states going parimutal is low.
