There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Friday evening’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday’s drawing will grow to $530 million.
A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at a supermarket in Bakersfield and is worth $973,668, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game.
Tickets with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, sold in other states are worth either $1 million or a multiple of $1 million, but California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.
The numbers drawn Friday were 8, 20, 26, 53, 64 and the Mega number was 15. The estimated jackpot was $480 million.
The drawing was the 26th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.
The Mega Millions game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. Virgin Islands.
