In 2012, three winning tickets were sold, so the jackpot was split three ways in Kansas, Illinois, and Maryland. The chance of matching all six numbers and winning the jackpot is one in 302.5 million.

The next drawing will be Tuesday. The largest single-ticket victor in Mega Millions history was on July 24, 2018, when one person from California won the $543 million drawing.

The grand prize increased to the third-largest jackpot in the lottery's history, after no tickets matched all the numbers in the Tuesday drawing.

The jackpot victor will need to match numbers on all five white balls and the Mega Ball.

Win them both and, well, you'd make history. and earn $862 million. Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night's drawing would be an estimated $309 million. But if you only match two white balls and don't match the yellow ball, you won't win anything.

Even when a victor is eventually announced, it could still take a while before we find out their identity (if ever.) The time they have to claim their prize varies by the state.

Saturday's jackpot has a cash option of $179.4 million. With the big jackpot in March 2018 that was about $521 million (and we've now surpassed that amount, ) we actually didn't find out if anyone won until the next morning.

The prize money is drawn from ticket sales in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.
