Mega Millions prize of $654M is nation’s 4th-largest

Lottery officials increased the estimated jackpot for tonight's drawing from $654 million to $667 million, making it the third-largest grand prize in USA history.

The winning numbers drawn Tuesday were: 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9. St. Marie's Market in Swanton is one business that continues to get more customers purchasing lottery tickets.

Can't wait for Friday night?

The chances at winning millions continues tomorrow with the Powerball jackpot.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be held Tuesday at 11 p.m. ET, and tickets must be purchased by 10:00 p.m. Tuesday to be eligible. In addition, there's the Powerball jackpot that up for grabs Wednesday night, which is worth an estimated $380 million.

The odds of winning both are 1 in 88 quadrillion (that's 15 zeroes), according to CNBC. Some say they will quit their day job, while others have other plans.

That means the jackpot for Friday's drawing is now at least $868 million or a cash lump sum of $494.5 million.

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

At 1 in 700,000, women are 432 times more likely to give birth to identical quadruplets than win the lottery.

The jackpot keeps swelling because nobody has won since July 24, when 11 workers in a California office shared $543 million, the largest prize ever won on a single ticket in the game. It will be the largest jackpot in the game's history and the second largest in the US lottery jackpot history.
