No Winners in Tuesday Night's Mega Millions Drawing

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in the latest multi-state Mega Millions draw, and the estimated jackpot for Friday's drawing will grow to $40 million, lottery officials announced tonight.
Eleven tickets -- one each sold in California, Georgia, Illinois,
Michigan, New Jersey and Virginia, three sold in New York and two in Texas --
had five numbers, but didn't have the Mega number. All but the one sold in
California are each worth $250,000.
The value of the ticket sold in California with five numbers is expected
to be announced Saturday. State law restricts payoffs in California Lottery
games to pari-mutuel prizes.
The numbers drawn tonight were 3, 11, 12, 14, 21 and the Mega number was
25. The jackpot was $30 million.
The drawing was the fourth since the last time a ticket with all six
numbers was sold. A ticket sold in New York for the Jan. 13 draw had all six
numbers and was worth $22 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.
California Lottery officials reminded the public that borrowing money to
play the lottery, spending above a person's budget or using money intended
for other purposes can ultimately lead to significant problems for players and
their families.
People with gambling problems or knowing individuals with gambling
problems are advised to call the Problem Gambling Help Line, (800) Gambler.
