Mega Millions: Drawing for Highest Jackpot on Friday Oct 19

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million. The winning numbers for Tuesday's drawing were 3, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with a Megaball of 9.

Bradley Acord, 37, took the day off form work Wednesday to go claim his $10,000 Mega Millions prize in Topeka. The cash option is usually favored by the winners.

The largest lottery jackpot ever won on a single ticket in the United States was a $758.7 million prize won on a Powerball ticket purchased in Chicopee for a drawing on August 23, 2017, officials said.

"It's been a long time since anyones hit the Mega or the Powerball so tonight will be Powerball and then Friday will be Mega and it gets everybody excited, it's been quite awhile since anybody hit it", Pitcock said.

The Powerball jackpot was last won in August 2018.


Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

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

The winning ticket was purchased at Bigs Aztec Corner Store on North St. Mary's Street near West Commerce in the downtown area, according to the lottery website.

It costs $2 to play the games, but the odds of winning the jackpots aren't good.
