No big Mega Millions jackpot winnah yet again on Tuesday, April 28.

Ten players matched four white balls, good for $10,000, but three of the winners had added the 3x megaplier for just a buck more, netting them $30,000.

The numbers drawn Tuesday were 13 – 19 – 53 – 54  – 63. The Powerball was 17.

With no big money winner, the jackpot rolled over again, bringing it up to $200 million. The cash option stands at $161.8 million for the May 1 drawing.

Changes in jackpots and rollovers

With lotto sales currently down, there are some temporary changes for draw games like Mega Millions and Powerball.

Once the Mega jackpot hits, it will reset to $20 million rather than the traditional $40 million, as the Powerball recently did. Further, there is no minimum amount by which the jackpot will increase each time it is not hit.

That means the increases from drawing to drawing will depend upon sales and interest rates. It also means jackpots will likely increase slower.

Still, the Mega Millions jackpot continues to grow as it hits the $200 million mark. For many, that will be worth a $2 (or $3 with the megaplier) shot. The odds of hitting the jackpot remain long – very long – but 1 out of 24 plays wins some amount.
