Mega Millions lottery jackpot raised to $220 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions lottery jackpot raised to $220 million

The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing was raised to $220 million.

The rollover occurred because none of the tickets sold for Friday night's $179 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball number. The next drawing will be Tuesday night.

There were 13 second-prize winners from Friday night's drawing: 3 from California, 2 from Maryland, 1 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 4 from New York, and 1 from Virginia.  Each second prize ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 apiece, except for California winners, who will get $368,554 each.

Unlike the other eleven Mega Millions states, California has pari-mutuel payouts at every prize level, so winners are paid an amount based on ticket sales and number of winners.

Also, 83 players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000, except for California tickets, which are worth $9,662 each.

The winning numbers from Friday night's drawing were: 7, 11, 26, 30 and 53. The Mega Ball number was 14.

The Texas Megaplier was 3.

                  I think it may roll one or two times, but I don't think it will be a record jackpot.

                        I think the mega Million jackpot will be 225 - 227 million today.  Lots of people are buying today.

                          Yeah, I think it will be higher than advertised too.  I'm thinking 222 million.  Don't know why that number.... It just seems to stick out to me.
