$4 million won in Florida, Mega Millions rolls to $418 million

A $4 million ticket was sold in Florida.

What would have been the eighth largest Mega Millions jackpot ever now has the potential to become its fourth largest prize.

The jackpot continues to roll after no ticket matched all six numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing – the white balls 1, 42, 47, 64 and 70, plus the gold Mega Ball 22.

Two tickets matched the five white balls Tuesday night to win the game’s second prize. One sold in Florida that is worth $4 million because it included the optional Megaplier, which is four times for Tuesday’s drawing. The other sold in Ohio is a $1 million winner.

The odds of winning Tuesday's $361 million jackpot were more than 1 in 302 million. Those odds remain the same for Friday's $418 million top prize.
