You Didn't Win the Mega Millions Jackpot—Who Did?

Lucky people in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland hit all six numbers, and 29 people in California got five.

No Mega Millions tickets sold in California matched all six winning numbers in the record-setting $640 million, multi-state drawing, but 29 tickets sold matched five numbers and are each worth $227,955 today.

Tickets with five numbers but missing the Mega number were sold at the following Los Angeles County locations:

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number is 1 in 175,711,536, according to the Mega Millions website.

The previous largest jackpot on record -- $390 million -- was won in the March 6, 2007 Mega Millions drawing.

The drawing was the 19th since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
