Mega Millions jackpot has increased to $1.2 billion after no winner.

After no one was able to match all the numbers on Tuesday, the Mega Millions jackpot increased to $1.25 billion.

Tuesday’s late-night drawing’s winning numbers were 8, 24, 30, 45, 61, and the gold Mega Ball 12.

Each of the seven winners who correctly predicted five numbers will receive $1 million (after taxes). One player in Texas chose to add the Megaplier after receiving five numbers. They received $4 million. Only the bonus ball was correctly selected by more than 500,000 people, who each received $2.

When Powerball jackpots are included, Tuesday’s prize of $1.1 billion ranks as the sixth-largest in American lottery history and the fourth-largest Mega Millions jackpot ever.

A Mega Millions jackpot winner has the choice between receiving an annuity or a single cash payment. The new jackpot’s cash option would be around $625.3 million. The estimated value of that option for the jackpot on Tuesday night was $550.2 million.

The third-largest Mega Millions jackpot was won in Illinois in July 2022 with a winning ticket estimated to be worth $1.337 billion.

TheĀ largest Mega Millions jackpot, estimated at $1.537 billion, was won in 2018, and the most valuable Mega Millions ticket ever sold this past January was sold in Maine.

AboutĀ $2.04 billion worth of the largest U.S. lottery jackpot was won in California in November 2022. The second-largest prize, which was also a Powerball grand prize, was worth an estimated $1.586 billion and was divided among three ticket holders from California, Florida, and Tennessee.

About 1 in 302.58 million people have a chance of winning the Mega Millions jackpot.

In 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, tickets are available for $2 each. On Tuesday and Friday nights, drawings take place.
