The winning numbers for Tuesday night’s $1.1 billion Mega Millions jackpot draw were 7, 13, 14, 15, 18 with a Mega Ball of 9, according to the lottery on its website.
The jackpot has grown to over the trillion dollar mark after no ticket has matched any of the winning numbers in the past three months.
If there is a winner in Tuesday’s drawing, it would be the third largest jackpot in Mega Millions history, the lottery announced in a press release.
According to Mega Millions, it’s the fourth time in just over four years that the top prize has exceeded $1 billion.
The estimated jackpot of $1.1 billion ($568.7 million in cash) is only surpassed by the lottery record $1.537 billion won in South Carolina in 2018 and $1.337 billion in prize money US dollar won in Illinois in July.
While the top prize has remained untouched, the game has boasted more than 27 million tickets sold since the jackpot was last won on October 14, including 52 players who scooped $1 million or more, Mega Millions said.
“It’s especially nice to see the jackpot growing over the holidays and into the New Year,” said Pat McDonald, lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium, in the press release. “We are grateful for the support of our customers and retailers, which enables each of our 47 member lotteries to raise funds for good causes in their areas of responsibility. As the jackpot grows, we encourage our players to stick to their entertainment budget and enjoy that jackpot run right with us.”
There have been 24 draws since the last jackpot was hit in October, the lottery said.
