No tickets sold for Tuesday's $361 million drawing matched all six numbers, meaning the lottery's grand prize jackpot rolls over to its fourth highest amount in the fifteen year of the Mega Millions lottery.

In addition, a Tuesday night drawing without a Mega Millions grand prize victor has boosted the jackpot for Friday night to an estimated $418 million.

The Megaplier was 4X making that Mega Millions ticket worth $4 million.

The winning numbers selected Wednesday night were 2, 18, 37, 39 and 42, and the Powerball number was 12.

Pick 3 winners receive $500 for a $1 straight bet and the odds of winning are 1-in-1,000.

Winning numbers were 01-42-47-64-70. The drawing is Wednesday night.

The drawing takes place at 9:59 p.m. and all sales are cutoff exactly an hour before. Players who buy the bundle get a $2 Powerball® with Power Play® ticket, a $2 Mega Millions® ticket, and a free $1 Natural State Jackpot ticket.

According to the website, powerball.net, IN lays claim to 39 jackpot winners since the game began IN 1992, totaling 10.7 percent of all jackpot winners.

The official Ohio Lottery site offers more information on instant tickets, raffles and other lottery games.
