LOS ANGELES (CBS) — We can think of at least 244 million reasons to go check your Mega Millions tickets. The numbers in tonight’s multi-state Mega Millions draw are 1, 14, 35, 50, 53 and the Mega number is 43.
The estimated jackpot is $244 million.
And if your ticket matched all six numbers, you will win…do we actually have to say anything else? You know the drill.
The drawing was the 14th 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 Web site.
The Mega Millions game is played in 41 states and the District of Columbia.
If no ticket matches all six numbers, the jackpot draw Friday will go to an estimated $304 million (give or take a few bucks.)
