CHICAGO (STMW) – No one matched all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing, but one player in Illinois, who bought the ticket in west suburban Northlake, came pretty close, missing the $12 million jackpot by one number.
That player, who bought a Quick Pick ticket at the Northlake Citgo, 5 W. North Ave. in Northlake, matched the first five numbers and will receive $250,000, according to the Illinois Lottery.
The winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing were: 06 – 20 – 29 – 48 and 55, and the Mega Ball number was 06.
Three players in Illinois matched four of the first five numbers and the Mega Ball, and they will each collect $10,000.
The next Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for Tuesday and the jackpot is $19 million.
