Mega Millions Tuesday jackpot ranks sixth in lottery history

The Mega Millions jackpot increased to $565 million on Tuesday after the multi-state lottery failed to produce a winner in more than 10 weeks.

No one matches 15-21-32-38-62 and 8 In last Friday’s drawings.

The last time the jackpot was this big was on July 29, 2022, when $1.337 billion in lottery tickets were sold in Iowa.

Millionaire has produced six winners so far in 2022.

Mega Millions is held in every state except Hawaii, Alaska, Nevada, Utah and Alabama. The odds of drawing all six numbers in Millionaire are nearly one in 302 million.

Even just matching five numbers is worth $1 million.

Tuesday’s drawing will take place at 11:00 p.m. ET. Had the winning ticket not been sold tonight, Friday’s jackpot could have topped $600 million.
