The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $177 million Wednesday, the largest jackpot in 4 months.
The last time the jackpot was $177 million was on Tuesday, February 17, 2004. That drawing, the jackpot rolled over to $239 million, when it was won by J.R. Triplett, claiming the the second-biggest undivided jackpot in U.S. history.
None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $150 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.
There were 14 second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 2 from Georgia, 1 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 3 from New Jersey, 4 from New York, 2 from Texas, and 1 from Virginia. Those tickets are each worth $175,000.
Ninety-one players matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $5,000.
The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 9, 10, 17, 41, and 52. The Mega Ball number was 19.
