·2 min read

No one won the Mega Millions jackpot Tuesday night so the jackpot will climb to $421 million for Friday night's drawing, according to the Mega Millions website.

The cash option will be $290.9 million.

While no lottery player hit the $396 million grand prize, two tickets won million-dollar prizes by matching all five white balls. A ticket sold in Texas won $1 million, while a Rhode Islander had the Megaplier to win $3 million.

The winning numbers drawn on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2022 were: 3 - 12 - 38 - 53 - 58 and Megaball 13. The Megaplier was 3X.

The Mega Millions has not been hit since someone in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, won a $108 million jackpot back in October.

The Mega Millions costs $2 per ticket and is drawn twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays.
