Mega Millions jackpot increases to $12 million

Mega MillionsMega Millions: Mega Millions jackpot increases to $12 million

The jackpot in the multi-state Mega Millions lottery grew to $12 million Wednesday.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $10 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball.  The next drawing will be Friday.

There were eight second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing: 1 from Illinois, 1 from Michigan, 2 from New Jersey, 3 from New York, and 1 from Texas.  Each ticket matched all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $175,000.

Also, 16 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: 8, 34, 39, 48, and 49.  The Mega Ball number was 47.

    drawing average is 6.8...I'm sure some of these were people that might have purchased more than one draw on the same set of numbers thinking it would roll over again
