Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The Mega Millions jackpot rolled over again after Tuesday night's drawing, when no one had purchased a ticket matching all five numbers plus the Mega Ball.

One ticket in New York matched the first five numbers, and that player will win $1 million.

The Mega Millions numbers for Tuesday were 20, 30, 32, 42 and 71, and the Mega Ball was 14. Lottery officials said the drawing used the new Mega Millions matrix, adding more numbers for the first five and giving people chances to win more prizes, while reducing the numbers for the Mega Ball.

The changes are intended to drive up jackpots.

Wednesday's Powerball drawing is for a $110 million jackpot.
