Mega Millions Close to Setting New Record

Mega Millions Close to Setting New Record

It's the second biggest Mega Millions drawing ever, and the third biggest lottery jackpot in USA history.

The Powerball numbers drawn Saturday were 11-14-32-43-65 and the Powerball was 15.

- The fourth-largest lottery prize in US history will be on the line as numbers are drawn for the Mega Millions game's $654 million jackpot.

The odds of winning Tuesday's drawing is more than 302 million to one.

Mega Millions Lottery forms are pictured at Ted's State Line Mobil in Methuen, Mass., July 24, 2018. The next Mega Millions drawing will be Tuesday.

The Mega Millions drawing takes place at 8 p.m. Tuesday, while Powerball's draw is slated for 8 p.m. Wednesday.

And Friday's Mega Millions wasn't a complete bust.

Three other Mega Millions jackpots have been won this year: $451 million on January 5 (Florida), $533 million on March 30 (New Jersey) and $142 million on May 4 (Ohio). One ticket, sold in Arkansas, matched the five white balls Friday night to win the game's second prize that, because of a multiplier, cashed in for $3 million. That historic drawing, back in March 2012, for $656 million was shared between ticket holders in Illinois, Kansas, and Maryland.
