LANSING, Mich. -

The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to an estimated $49 million for the next drawing in the multistate lottery game.
 
   The grand prize amount rolled over because no player matched all the winning numbers to take the $41 million jackpot up for grabs Friday night. Mega Millions will be played again on Tuesday.
 
   No players who bought a ticket in Michigan won a lesser prize of $250,000, but a single ticket-holder from Michigan did win a $10,000 prize.
 
   The winning numbers from Friday were: eight, 37, 44, 47 and 48. The Mega Ball number was 27.
