Mega Millions jackpot soars to $900 million, second-highest

Numbers for Mega Millions drawing

The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday's drawing has reached a record-high $900 million, making it the second-largest jackpot in United States lottery history, officials said.

Because no tickets matched all six numbers, the jackpot increased to the whopping sum of $868 million. The winning numbers on Tuesday were 69, 45, 61, 3, 49, and the Mega Ball was 9.

Those who take the cash will receive a one-time lump-sum equal to all the cash in the prize pool - which is $494 million for Friday's drawing.

The $667 million jackpot is the third-largest grand prize in USA history.

The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $900 million.

A handful of million-dollar tickets were sold, including one in NY, one in New Jersey and two in Pennsylvania. The chance of matching all six numbers for the Mega Millions and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million.

The next Powerball drawing will be held Wednesday night at 11. If the victor chooses the annuity option, the jackpot would be paid out over 29 years.

The largest Powerball jackpot was $1.586 billion, which was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

On Sunday, Samantha teased her Twitter followers, writing, " Everybody would love to know what's in that letter ". Samantha, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, was pushed by her partner in a wheelchair through an open gate.

In New Jersey, seven tickets were sold that matched four of the five white balls and the Gold Mega Ball drawn winning the $10,000 third-tier prize.

Officials were anxious that the relatively smaller but more frequent prizes - a "paltry" $100 million, for instance - would result in "jackpot fatigue", which is why they tweaked the game a year ago, Medenica said.

The biggest winning ticket from Tuesday night's drawing in Nebraska was $1,000.

Winners have 180 days from the drawing to claim prizes. More than 55,000 winning tickets are outstanding, with unclaimed prizes ranging from $2 to $50,000, according to the statement.
