While no one across the country hit Tuesday’s $170 million jackpot, a second-prize, $1 million ticket was sold in Ohio.
In New Jersey, one of the nine tickets that matched four numbers was sold with the Mega Ball and is worth $2,000. The others are valued at $500 apiece.
Tuesday’s winning numbers were: 6, 15, 41, 63 and 64. The Mega Ball drawn was 24 with a Megaplier of 4x.
The odds of a $2 ticket matching all the winning numbers are 302,575,350 to 1. Players have a 1 in 12,607,306 chance of a ticket matching five numbers but not the Mega Ball and winning at least $1 million.
Drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday in 45 states, along with Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
New Jersey Lottery offices in Lawrence are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. if players prefer to drop off claims and validate winning tickets in person. Claims can be left in a secure drop box at lottery headquarters. That option applies to prizes worth more than $599.50.
