Mega Millions Winner

ATLANTA (AP) -- The winning ticket from last night's $12 million Mega Millions lottery drawing was sold in New Jersey.

In addition to the grand prize winner, five tickets -- none in Illinois -- matched all five numbers but not the Mega Ball number. They will receive second prizes of $250,000 each.

Another 15 tickets, none in Illinois, matched four numbers, plus the Mega Ball number -- good for third prizes of $10,000 each.

The numbers drawn last night were: 2, 19, 23, 47 and 54. The Mega Ball number was 16.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be Friday and will have an estimated jackpot of $12 million.
