No Mega Millions jackpot winner but 2 tickets with big prizes sold at stores in Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — No one took home the big jackpot in Tuesday night’s Mega Millions drawing, but two people in Florida woke up richer.

Florida Lottery’s website shows that two people matched five of the five numbers but not the Mega Ball. Tuesday’s numbers were 7-13-14-15-18 with 9 as the Mega Ball.


One ticket, which included the Megaplier, won $3 million. The other ticket did not and it won $1 million.

Action News Jax has reached out to the Florida Lottery to find out where the winning tickets were sold.

With no winners in Tuesday night’s jackpot, Friday’s drawing will be for $1.35 billion with a cash value of $707.9 million. You can see if your numbers match with the Mega Millions drawing live on CBS47 and FOX30 before Action News Jax at 11 p.m. Friday.
