Mega Millions jackpot jumps to $400M

Posted: Updated:
Friday's Mega Millions jackpot is estimated to be $400 million after no one matched all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing.

But five tickets worth $1 million were sold in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Ohio. Those tickets matched the first five numbers.

There's no word what stores sold those tickets.  The winning numbers were: 5, 12, 22, 41, 65 and the Mega Ball 13.

“In December 2009 and 2011, New York had a Mega Millions jackpot winner during the holiday season. We are hopeful that our lucky holiday jackpot history with Mega Millions will continue for this year as well,” said Gardner Gurney, Acting Director of the Division of the Lottery.

Past holiday jackpot Mega Millions winners include Richard and Mary Morrison of Miller Place, Suffolk County, who won $165,000,000 from the December 22, 2009 drawing, and Daniel Bruckner of San Jose, California, who won $208,000,000 from the December 27, 2011 drawing. “At $400,000,000, more than these two jackpots combined, someone could have a very memorable holiday season,” Gurney said.

The new jackpot marks the second largest Mega Millions jackpot in the game's 11-year history since New York joined the game. The jackpot has not been at this level since March 2012 when a $363,000,000 jackpot had no winner resulting in the largest Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million for the March 30, 2012 drawing. Three players from Illinois, Kansas and Maryland split the jackpot.

If no one matches all five numbers plus the Mega Ball in Friday’s drawing, the jackpot will continue to grow. Tickets for Friday’s Mega Millions drawing can be purchased until 10:45 p.m. EST.
