Mega Millions Payout Reaches $400 Million; 5 Tickets Worth $1 Million

December 11, 2013 Updated: December 11, 2013

The Mega Millions payout has reached $400 million, as no one matched all six numbers in Tuesday’s drawing.

The winner could take 30 average annual payments of $10 million, or a lump sum of $162.3 million. Both totals are minus 25 percent federal tax, and don’t include state tax.

Five tickets worth $1 million were sold in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Ohio. Those tickets matched the first five numbers.

There’s no word what stores sold those tickets.

The winning numbers are: 5, 12, 22, 41, 65 and the Mega Ball 13.

The next drawing is on Friday at 11 p.m. EDT.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 258,890,850.
