Mega Millions Results for $667M Jackpot

A lottery ticket for the current record breaking $667 million U.S. Mega Millions jackpot is shown in this illustration

The U.S. Mega Millions jackpot swelled to $868 million early Wednesday, making it the second-largest lottery grand prize in U.S. history and the largest-ever Mega Millions reward.

No winning ticket matched all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing.

This is the second-largest jackpot in United States history.

In January 2016, the Powerball jackpot hit almost $1.6 billion, making it the biggest Powerball jackpot in history, as well as the highest lottery grand prize in the US ever.

The next Mega Millions drawing will happen on Friday, October 19, at 11 p.m. ET.

People around the country waited to see if their Mega Millions ticket matched the numbers drawn Tuesday night.




If someone picks the winning six numbers, they can either claim the jackpot in 30 payments over 30 years - the so-called annuity option - or take a reduced amount in a lump sum. The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $380 million.

The Powerball jackpot was last won in August 2018.

Mega Millions players select five numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25.

Mega Millions is a lottery that's available in 44 states, plus Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

There may not have been a big victor Tuesday night, but there were more than four million winning tickets at different prize levels. MA residents have the biggest taste for playing the odds, spending nearly $763 per year on lottery tickets, the study found.
