Big jackpot gets another boost

There are about 20 million more reasons to play the Mega Millions lottery.

The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing has grown to $122 million.

That's because none of the tickets sold for last night's $102 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The winning numbers were 4, 5, 17, 40 and 51, and the Mega Ball number was 38.

Nine second-prize winners each won $250,000 by matching all five lotto numbers. And 37 players matched four lotto numbers and the Mega Ball number to win $10,000 each.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be held Friday night.
