The Mega Millions jackpot climbs to an estimated $104 million ($64 million cash) for the next drawing on Christmas, December 25. No ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night – the white balls 11, 21, 40, 50 and 70, plus the gold Mega Ball 15.
Two tickets matched the five white balls on December 22. One, purchased in Indiana, is worth $3 million because the purchase included the optional Megaplier. The other Match 5 winning ticket was sold in New York and is worth $1 million.
It is the 16th time this year that a Match 5 prize has been multiplied by the Megaplier. The $3 million ticket is the first Match 5 winning ticket sold in Indiana since the Mega Millions matrix was changed in October 2013.
The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won in Ohio on November 13. That $202 million jackpot was claimed earlier this month by the Lucky Duck Passive Trust.
