Somebody bought a $3-million winning Mega Millions ticket in Rhode Island.

The big win came even as the Mega Millions jackpot continues growing to an estimated $421 million.

The Rhode Island ticket won the game's second prize, matching five white balls in Tuesday night's drawing. The prize was tripled because the ticket buyer included the optional Megaplier, an extra $1 purchase, according to Mega Millions.

On Tuesday night, the white balls 3, 12, 38, 53 and 58 were drawn, along with the gold Mega Ball 13.

A $1 million winning ticket was sold in Texas.

The winners were not identified in a Mega Millions press release.
