Atlanta (AP) -- For the second time in less than a week, there's a grand prize winner in the Mega Millions multistate lottery game.

One winning ticket sold in Georgia matched all the numbers to take Tuesday night's estimated $12 million jackpot.

The top prize amount was knocked down to $12 million after two players on Friday won a jackpot that had built up to an estimated $333 million when there was no grand prize winner for several weeks.

The Ohio Lottery says another nine players Tuesday won second prizes of $250,000 each, including two who bought tickets in Ohio.

Another two tickets sold in Ohio were among 26 across the country worth third prizes of $10,000.

The winning numbers from Tuesday were: 2, 9, 28, 51 and 53, with 19 as the mega ball number.
