Mega Millions Jackpot Raised Again to $900 Million

Here are the Mega Millions winning numbers

There was not a victor for last night's Mega Millions jackpot - bringing it now to an estimated $868 million.

Tuesday's drawing marked the 24th consecutive one where nobody matched all six numbers drawn.

That means the jackpot for Friday's drawing is now at least $868 million or a cash lump sum of $494.5 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $900 million. They agreed to split the winnings and continue working.

"Everyone is talking about the jackpot and running out to buy tickets for tonight's drawing", Gordon Medenica, Mega Millions lead director and Maryland Lottery and Gaming director, said in a press release. The winning numbers for Tuesday's drawing were 3, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with a Megaball of 9. But raising the number of Mega Balls makes it harder to win the jackpot.

The odds of hitting the jackpot by matching all six numbers correctly are an astronomical one in 302.6 million.

The next drawing will be Friday. One person in Texas won $5 million and the other eight get $1 million each.

Here's how Mega Millions used to work: Players picked five numbers from 1 to 75 and a Mega number from 1 to 15.

Jackpot winners have a choice to make: cash or annuity. The estimated jackpot for that drawing would be the second-largest lottery prize in US history. North Dakotans are on the opposite end of the spectrum, spending about $44 per year on the lottery, or the lowest average figure among residents of all 50 states. Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Alabama and MS do not participate.

And if you have noticed a run of eye-popping jackpots from Mega Millions and the similarly designed Powerball recently, that's by design, too. That jackpot has reached an estimated $345 million.
