ORLANDO, Fla. - Nobody matched all 6 numbers from Friday's Mega Millions drawing.

The winning numbers were 19, 24, 26, 27, 70 and the Mega ball 12.

The jackpot now is now up to $550 million for Tuesday's drawing.

It is the largest jackpot since the multi-state lottery came to Florida earlier this year.

Two $1 million tickets were sold in Florida.  The tickets matched 5 numbers, but not the Mega ball.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 259 million.

Mega Millions is currently played in 43 states, plus Washington and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Tuesday's drawing can be seen on Local 6 during the 11 p.m. newscast.
