Tuesday night's drawing for the $361 million Mega Millions jackpot failed to produce a winner, so the jackpot is even more lucrative now: It's an estimated $418 million, according to Mega Millions officials.
The numbers drawn Tuesday were 1, 42, 64, 47, 70. The Mega Ball: 22.
Lottery players across the country could win big if they have the winning numbers for both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots, the latter of which will be drawn Wednesday.
The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to be $440 million with a one-time cash payout of $278.3 million.
But the odds of a person winning the combined $858 million jackpot is 88 quadrillion to one, Ronald Wasserstein, executive director of the American Statistical Association, told ABC News.
This is only the second time Powerball and Mega Millions have simultaneously had jackpots this high at the same time, larger than $300 million, according to Mega Millions officials.
If there is a winner, he or she could choose an annuity to receive 30 payments over 29 years or take a lump sum.
