Tonight’s Powerball jackpot is $40 million; Mega Millions jackpot rises to $74 million for Friday

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ohio Lottery players have three big drawings to look forward to tonight, plus a continuously growing Mega Millions jackpot for Friday.

No one matched Tuesday’s winning Mega Millions numbers of 31, 33, 35, 41 and 69 with the Mega Ball of 11, so the jackpot for Friday’s drawing has climbed to $74 million. Three players – one each in New york, South Carolina and Virginia – matched the first five numbers, but missed the Mega Ball, so instead of winning Tuesday’s $65 million jackpot, each of these players has won $1 million.
