The jackpot, the third-largest in Mega Millions history, soared after no one won the big prize in Tuesday night's drawing. The largest single-ticket victor in Mega Millions history was on July 24, 2018, when one person from California won the $543 million drawing. Eastern, but states may stop selling tickets 15 minutes to an hour before the drawing. The jackpot had climbed to an estimated $548 million.
The next drawing will be Tuesday.
It's not yet known whether anyone had bought a winning ticket.
The Mega Millions jackpot is approaching $470 million. Although that court's ruling isn't binding in other states, it means that there's at least a chance that a victor might file a similar lawsuit and win for future jackpots.
It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of instant wealth aren't good.
Four lucky winners did match the first five numbers and each was poised to collect $1 million.
Matching four white balls and the Mega Ball will get you $10,000.
Did you win something tonight? Not bad for a couple of $2 tickets. The most recent Mega Ball was 18 on Tuesday night. It was the 22nd consecutive drawing that no one matched all six numbers.
You can buy a ticket at any retailer that sells lottery tickets, typically a gas station/convenience store or a grocery store.
Lottery officials revealed Saturday that no one had a ticket with the winning numbers - 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and Mega Ball 7.
