The Morrisons didn't win a $162-million Mega Millions prize - the actual prize will be $165 million, New York State Lottery officials said Wednesday.

The $162-million figure was the guaranteed minimum jackpot prize. After sales closed for the drawing last month, the 12 Mega states determined total sales and were able to increase the pot by $3 million because of increased sales.
