BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Though there was no jackpot winner in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing, two people who bought tickets in Massachusetts won $1,000,000 each for matching the first five winning numbers.
According to Mass Lottery, the million-dollar tickets were sold at the Wegman's in Chestnut Hill and Jacqueline's Supermarket in Lawrence.
With no jackpot winner, the top prize shoots up to $1.35 billion for the next Mega Millions drawing on Friday. If someone wins that, they would secure the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions' history and the fourth-largest in U.S. lottery history. The cash option for that prize would be an estimated $707.9 million.
There have been 25 drawings since the jackpot was last hit on October 14, where tickets in California and Florida won a share of $502 million.
