Mega Millions Jackpot Soars To $363M For Tuesday Night’s Drawing

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Mega Millions jackpot has soared to a whopping $363 million for Tuesday night’s drawing.

No one matched all six winning numbers – 6, 17, 19, 20, 21, and Mega number 20 – in Friday’s drawing.

Seven tickets sold in California matched five of the six numbers, including tickets worth $259,382 purchased in Commerce and Montebello.

Jesus Vasquez, the manager of Bluebird Liquor in Hawthorne, told CBS2’s Joy Benedict that his store sold more than 80,000 tickets Monday.

“This is the best in the west,” Vasquez said of Bluebird, which has had six customers win more than $1 million over the years.

“I see already five big winners, plus a lot of small winners,” he added. “Tonight, it is the day.”

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in 175,711,536.
