Mega Millions grows to $390 million for Tuesday drawing
There was no winner in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing, which puts the annuity value for Tuesday night's drawing at $390 million.
The numbers drawn Friday night were: 11, 14, 54, 57 and 63, plus the Mega Ball 11. Game officials said there were four Match 5 tickets worth $1 million each sold in Arizona, Illinois and North Carolina with one worth $5 million purchased in Texas because of the game's Megaplie.
In New Jersey, more than 156,000 tickets won prizes ranging from $1 to $5,000 in the Friday night drawing, according to New Jersey Lottery spokeswoman Judith Drucker.
Tuesday night's drawing, with a cash value of $265 million, is the game's fourth largest jackpot. In a bit of deja vu, a $390 million prize was won on March 6, 2007, shared by winners in Georgia and New Jersey.
A Mega Millions jackpot with an annuity value of $190 million was shared in 2013 by a Tinton Falls couple and a player in Virginia. Before that, a jackpot worth $390 million was split with a Georgia ticket holder.
The Smith family of Trenton shared a $284 million cash Powerball jackpot in May, which was the game's sixth largest jackpot.
The odds of matching all five white balls and the gold Mega ball is 1 in 258,890,850.
