Here are the winning numbers for the $830M Mega Millions jackpot
Tuesday's Mega Millions lottery numbers
The winning numbers in Tuesday evening’s drawing were: 07-29-60-63-66 Mega Ball:15, Megaplier: 3.
Prize grows to $830M
Lottery officials on Tuesday afternoon raised the Mega Millions grand prize to $830 million ahead of the evening's drawing.
The cash value option is now at $487.9 million.
The jackpot has grown so large because there hasn't been a winner in three months. Those 27 consecutive drawings without anyone matching all six numbers have allowed the jackpot to gradually grow from its $20 million starting point in April.
The highlighted pre-tax $830 million prize is for a winner who takes an annuity option, paid out in 30 annual payments. Most players choose the cash option.
If won Tuesday, this would be the largest sum since $1.050 billion was won in Michigan on Jan. 22, 2021, according to Mega Millions.
