Mega Millions Jackpot Grows to $55M

Tuesday night's winning numbers are 11, 21, 27, 30 and 53. The Mega number is 11.

There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Tuesday night's drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery, and the estimated jackpot for Friday's drawing will grow to $55 million.

A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was sold at a gasoline station in Pasadena and is worth $204,087, a California Lottery official announced.

One ticket each with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, was also sold in Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey and West Virginia. Each are worth $250,000.

California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.

The numbers drawn tonight were 11, 21, 27, 30, 53 and the Mega number was 11. The estimated jackpot was $47 million.

The drawing was the sixth since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 40.

The Mega Millions game is played in 42 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
