Numbers drawn for $667 million Mega Millions jackpot

A worker processes lottery tickets

In the history of Mega Millions, 11 jackpots have been won in Maryland and nine won in Virginia since the first drawing took place in 2002.

If there was a winning ticket sold for Tuesday night's drawing, the victor would have received a $667 million jackpot.

The winning numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69, and the megaball of 9. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million, while the odds of winning any Mega Millions prize are one in 24, Reuters reported.

The lottery prize is the largest-ever for Mega Millions and the country's second-highest on record, trailing a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot that was paid out in 2016. The Maryland trio went for the cash option of $158 million.

Trump mocks the #MeToo movement at a rally, again
But Twitter users largely speculated he meant the saying, "the one that got away". He again said his replacement will be "the person that got away".

The reason these jackpots have ballooned to such monstrous proportions is because, well, no one has won in a while.

The odds of hitting the jackpot by matching all six numbers correctly are an astronomical one in 302.6 million, but the odds of turning a Mega Millions ticket into a victor of any kind, including a $2 prize simply for matching the "Mega ball", are a more down-to-earth one in 24.

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

Wednesday, the winning numbers for the $345-million Powerball jackpot prize will be drawn. The store received $1 million from Mega Millions for making the sale.
