Two Mega Millions tickets sold in Philadelphia are worth $250,000 each for matching the first five numbers drawn last night: 1, 6, 13, 20 and 51.

They just missed the jackpot, since they only missed the Mega Ball, which was 31.

This comes on the heels of a Philly ticket winning $258,000 in a Cash 5 drawing.

Nobody won the top Mega Million prize, so the annuity for Friday's drawing rose to $154 million, with the cash payout up to $115 million.

Those are less than the $222 million annuity and the $144.5 million cash payout up for grabs in Powerball tonight, but Mega Millions is a better value, costing $1 per ticket compared to the $2 for Powerball.

The Philadelphia tickets were sold at Akash News, 1601 Market St., and at the Hess station at 3300 Grays Ferry Ave.
