The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing grew to $55 million Wednesday.
None of the tickets sold for Tuesday’s $44 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.
There were three second-prize winners from Tuesday night’s drawing, matching all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 each. Also, 26 tickets matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.
The winning numbers from Tuesday’s drawing were: 8, 17, 20, 23 and 50. The Mega Ball number was 17.
