Numbers drawn for tonight’s record $1.58 billion Mega Millions jackpot

[ad_1]

The odds are long, but Tuesday’s Mega Millions drawing could yield a record jackpot — $1.58 billion.

The game’s previous largest jackpot was the $1.537 billion won in October 2018.

Tuesday’s winning numbers are 13-19-20-32-33 with the Mega Ball of 14.

The new jackpot is estimated to be $1.58 billion, which it reached after no one won the top prize in Friday night’s drawing, game officials said.

The potential record-setting jackpot has been months in the making. The last time someone won the jackpot was April 18. In Mega Millions, as in the Powerball lottery game, jackpots roll over when no one wins.

The estimated $1.58 billion jackpot is the largest ever for Mega Millions, but it appears to be a close third-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history overall.

A similar game, Powerball, has had top jackpots of $2.04 billion and $1.586 billion. Those were won in 2022 with one ticket in California, and in 2016 in a three-ticket split in three states, respectively.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.

The game is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
