RIVERSIDE, CA — A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, in the latest drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery was sold at a liquor store in Riverside and is worth $513,969, the California Lottery announced.

The numbers drawn Friday were 8, 35, 40, 53, 56 and the Mega number was 11. The estimated jackpot was $429 million.

The drawing was the 18th 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 California Lottery. 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.
