Mega Millions Grows to $34 Million
Lucky players nationwide continue to win big with the Mega Millions game. In Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing, a total of 377,982 tickets from coast to coast won prizes. That includes 2 tickets that each won $250,000. No ticket matched all six numbers to win the estimated $25 million jackpot in the Tuesday, June 13 drawing. So the jackpot for the Friday, June 16, 2006 drawing grows to an estimated $34 million. The winning numbers in Tuesday's drawing were: 01-20-23-24-33 and the Mega Ball number was 29. Those two tickets that each won $250,000 did so by matching the first five numbers and only missing the Mega Ball number. Those tickets were purchased in Illinois and Virginia. Mega Millions is played in 12 states: California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Texas, Virginia and Washington. Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 PM Eastern Time, 10:00 PM Central Time and 8:00 PM Pacific Time.
