Ohio – Even though there was no top-tier winner in the Mega Millions there were a total of 6,775,330, winning tickets at all prize levels. Nine tickets matched the five white balls to win the Mega Millions second prize. Two in Ohio won more than a million dollars.

According to a press release, one of the nine mentioned above was sold in Ohio, is worth $3 million because it included the optional Megaplier (a $1 extra purchase available in most states), which was 3X Tuesday night. Of the other eight Match 5 tickets worth $1 million, two each were sold in New Jersey and New York, plus one each in California, Florida, Illinois and Ohio.

For matching four white balls plus the Mega Ball, 156 tickets win the game’s third prize. Thirty-six of those are worth $30,000 each because they also included the optional Megaplier. The other 120 third-prize tickets win $10,000 each.
