WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Yet again there was no winner in the Mega Millions lottery, raising the jackpot for Friday's drawing to $180 million.

The winning numbers were 22-39-56-67-71, and the Mega Ball was 15. The Megaplier was 4, but irrelevant as there were no grand prize winners.

At least two people won the second prize jackpot of $1 million, correctly picking the five winning numbers but not the Mega Ball. One second prize ticket was sold in Essex County, N.J. and a second was sold in South Carolina.
