LOS ANGELES (CNS) — A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number, in Tuesday’s drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery, was sold at a market in Pacoima and is worth $1,091,799, the California Lottery announced.
The Cortesia Market, where the ticket was sold, but missing the Mega number, is located at 11552 Glenoaks Blvd.
California law requires major payoffs of lottery games to be paid on a pari-mutuel basis.
There were no tickets sold with all six numbers and the estimated jackpot for Friday’s drawing will grow to $191 million.
The numbers drawn Tuesday were 1, 9, 17, 27, 34 and the Mega number was 24. The estimated jackpot was $179 million.
The drawing was the 16th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the California Lottery. The overall chance of winning a prize is 1 in 24.
The Mega Millions game is played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and US Virgin Islands.
