ATLANTA, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- The Mega Millions jackpot rolled over again Tuesday night, when no ticket matched all six numbers for a drawing to win $195 million.

Two tickets sold matched five numbers, good for $1 million each, but neither also matched the all-important Gold Mega Ball to take home the jackpot. Those lucky new millionaires are in Arizona and Maryland.

The winning numbers were 12, 18, 25, 35 and 66, with a Gold Mega Ball of 15 and a 5x megaplier.

The next drawing, set for Friday at 11 p.m., will be for at least $216 million, with a cash option prize of $119 million.
