KXIP vs KKR Live Score

The winning numbers for Tuesday's drawing were 3, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with a Megaball of 9.

The game, which was created in 2002, has seen changes over the years that have reduced the chances of winning, meaning bigger and bigger jackpots.

Almost a billion dollars will be up for grabs Friday in a Mega Millions record jackpot.

The immediate cash value of the prize, which winners can opt to take, is $380 million. If someone wins the jackpot, it would mark the second-largest lottery grand prize in US history.

Nine Mega Millions tickets from Tuesday's drawing matched five white balls to win the second prize - $1 million.

Mega Millions says its previous record jackpot was a $656 million prize that was shared by winners from Kansas, Illinois and Maryland in March 2012. That ticket is worth $5 million. The next drawing will be Fri., Oct.19, 2018.




Believe it or not, this week's combined billion-dollar haul is not the biggest prize in the lottery's history.

Lottery tickets are sold at US$2 each in kiosks, supermarkets and gas stations in 44 U.S. states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

One in 302.5 million. The sales record for a single drawing in Massachusetts is about $32.971 million, which was for the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot drawing on January 13, 2016 - the largest lottery jackpot ever in the United States, according to Massachusetts State Lottery spokesman Christian Teja.

Of course, you could also enter the Powerball drawing on Wednesday.

Lottery officials urge players to check their tickets.
