LOS ANGELES - The numbers in tonight's multi-state Mega Millions draw are 10, 15, 22, 52, 53 and the Mega number is 12.
The estimated jackpot is $73 million. If no tickets are sold with all six numbers, the jackpot for the next drawing, scheduled for Friday, would rise to an estimated $86 million, a lottery official said.
The drawing was the eighth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold. A ticket sold in Georgia for the Oct. 21 draw had all six numbers and was worth $42 million.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions Web site.
Besides California, the Mega Millions game is played in Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington.
