Mega Millions jackpot jumps to a whopping $868M

Here are the Mega Millions winning numbers

Although the Mega Millions prize has grown larger, the odds of winning remain the same, at a dismal one in 302.5 million.

The numbers for Tuesday were 3-45-49-61-69 and a Mega Ball of 9.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be Friday.

Tickets start at $2 each, and there are nine different ways to win prizes - ranging from $2 to the jackpot.

The reason these jackpots have ballooned to such monstrous proportions is because, well, no one has won in a while.

There was one $5 million victor in Texas, where a player matched the first five numbers and included the optional Megaplier, which was purchased for an extra dollar.

Check your tickets! Here are the winning numbers for Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot.

"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.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all 6 numbers to claim the estimated $667 million grand prize in Tuesday night's drawing. The estimated cash value, if you're lucky enough to match all six numbers, is $380 million.

The previous largest single jackpot of $758.7 million was won last year by Mavis Wanczyk, a 53-year-old mother of two from MA.

That insane total would have been the highest Mega Millions jackpot in history.

Mega Millions is available in 44 US states, the capital Washington and the US Virgin Islands.

The Mega Millions drawing takes place at 8 p.m. Friday, while Powerball's draw is slated for 8 p.m. Wednesday.
