Mega Millions Rolls Over, Jackpot At $241M

CHICAGO (STMW) – The Mega Millions lottery has rolled over again. The jackpot for Friday night’s drawing was $200 million, but no one had the luck of the Irish on St. Patrick’s Eve, and the next drawing, set for Tuesday, will be worth an estimated $241 million.

The winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing were: 28 – 29 – 43 – 51 – 53 and the Mega Ball number was 07.

Among Illinois players, the closest anyone got to the jackpot were the five players who matched four of five numbers and the Mega Ball, and they each will receive $10,000, according to the Illinois Lottery.

The next Mega Millions drawing is scheduled for Tuesday night.
