The Mega Millions lottery jackpot is stuffed with the kind of money that could probably help balance the budget in a few cash-strapped cities or school districts. No one matched all of the winning numbers in last Tuesday’s game. That resulted in more moolah being added to the jackpot, which now stands at around $304 million.
The lucky digits: 1, 14, 35, 50, 53, and the Mega Ball 43. Five players in California came very close to winning it all. They got all but the Mega Ball correct. Each ticket is worth a cool $297, 525.
The next Mega Millions draw is tomorrow at 8 p.m.
