    There were no tickets sold with all six numbers in Friday night's drawing of the multi-state Mega Millions lottery and the estimated jackpot for Tuesday's drawing will grow to $418 million.

    A ticket with five numbers, but missing the Mega number was sold in New York. It is worth $2 million because the player utilized the Megaplier option, the Multi-State Lottery Association, which conducts the game, announced.

    The numbers drawn Friday were 14, 41, 44, 56, 62 and the Mega number was 10. The estimated jackpot was $393 million.

    The drawing was the 21st since the last time a ticket with all six numbers was sold.
