The Mega Millions lottery annuity jackpot has jumped to $237 million - or $150.8 million cash - after Tuesday night's drawing produced no top prize winner.
And even though no one won Tuesday's $200 million top prize, a second place ticket worth $250,000 was sold at Reen's Delicatessen, 12319 Academy Road in Northeast Philadelphia.
Another second place ticket was sold in Westmoreland County and two others were sold in New Jersey.
The winning numbers drawn Tuesday night in the Mega Millions game were 6, 18, 36, 40, 49 with the Mega Ball 7.
The new jackpot is the biggest to be offered by either the Mega Millions or Powerball games since June.
Then one ticket had all the numbers in $261.6 million Powerball drawing. A California couple claimed a $266 million Mega Millions jackpot in May.
The next Mega Millions drawing will be Friday night.
The top prize for tonight's Powerball drawing is $20 million or $10.2 million cash.
