Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot has jumped to $425 million after no winning tickets were sold for Friday night's jackpot drawing.
Those numbers were 9, 10, 25, 37 and 38. The mega ball was 21.
Even though no jackpot-winning tickets were sold, there were five 'Match 5' winning tickets sold in California, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Those tickets are worth $1 million each.
But one of the 'One Match 5 + Megaplier' tickets was sold in Washington, which is worth a tidy $2 million.
