There are about 30,000,000 more reasons to buy a ticket.

The jackpot in the multistate Mega Millions lottery drawing grew to $179 million Wednesday.

None of the tickets sold for Tuesday's $150 million drawing matched all five lotto numbers and the Mega Ball. The next drawing will be Friday.

There were 15 second-prize winners from Tuesday night's drawing, matching all five lotto numbers but not the Mega Ball number to win $250,000 each. Also, 66 tickets matched four of the five lotto numbers, plus the Mega Ball number. Those tickets are each worth $10,000.

The winning numbers from Tuesday's drawing were: 14, 27, 39, 47 and 50. The Mega Ball number was 12.
