No such luck this time for Philadelphia.

The latest Mega Millions jackpot, worth $118 million as an annuity, was won by a ticket purchased at a Citgo in Glenwood, Ill.

The April 25 Powerball jackpot, worth $107.5 million cash, was claimed Friday by a group of 49 SEPTA workers, who bought their tickets at the Gallery in Center City.

The Illinois ticket was the only one to match all of Friday's numbers: 4, 11, 21, 42, and 53, with a Mega Ball of 38.

Missing only the Mega Ball were tickets sold in New York, Ohio, Tennesse, Illinois, California and Washington. Payoffs range from $209,562 under California's pari-mutuel system to $1 million for any player who also purchased the optional Megaplier prize multiplier.

The jackpot for Tuesday's drawing rebooted to $12 million for the annuity, $8 million for the cash.

Psst, a hint: There are better bets. Tonight's Pick 6 in Jersey has a bigger jackpot -- $15.2 million for the annuity, $11.2 million cash — and the odds are about a dozen times better.

True, 1 in 14 million is a long shot, but Mega Millions' 1 in 172 million is far longer.

As for Powerball, nobody hit all the numbers drawn Saturday night, so the jackpot rose for Wednesday's drawing to $70 million for the annuity, $44.1 million for the cash. The numbers came up 9, 12, 20, 44 and 59, with a Power Ball of 23.

A Kentucky ticket won $2 million for matching the first five while having the Power Play prize-boosting option. Winning $1 million were tickets sold in New Jersey and Kentucky, whose players did not buy the Power Play.
