No Winner Means Mega Millions Jackpot Climbs To $868M

DES MOINES, Iowa  — No winning lottery ticket was sold for Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to $868 million.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $667 million grand prize in Tuesday night’s drawing. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million

The next drawing will be Friday. The estimated jackpot for that drawing would be the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. history.

The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

The record lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016.
