Two California players missed winning yesterday’s Mega Millions jackpot by one number — the Mega Ball. However, each of their tickets is worth a stack of money — $111,461. Not enough to retire on — but that should cover those holiday bills with some left over for a really nice spring vacation. The hot digits from Friday’s game: 5, 9, 21, 35, 38, and the Mega Ball 20.
Since no one scored all of the winning numbers yesterday, the Mega Millions lottery jackpot got bumped up to $63 Million. The next draw is Tuesday, January 25, 8 p.m.
