Mega Millions jackpot hits $145m
Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $145m after no ticket matched all six numbers in midweek.
Tuesday’s draw saw 12 tickets match the five main numbers to win $250,000, but none also managed to predict the Mega Ball that would have won them $130m.
Two of the winning 12 tickets were purchased in New York and another two in Pennsylvania, with the rest spread between Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, Texas and Virginia.
The winning numbers on Tuesday were 6-15-27-31-39 with a Mega Ball of 25.
Mega Millions tickets cost $1, with players picking five numbers between 1 and 56 alongside one number between 1 and 46.
