Mega Millions jackpot now close to $500 million

Friday night's winning numbers were 1, 14, 30, 44 and 62, plus the gold Mega Ball 1.

The Mega Millions jackpot is nearing the half-billion mark with a $493 million estimated total for Tuesday's drawing.

It's been a banner year so far with two major Mega Millions jackpots already being won. The drawing was at 11 p.m.

The odds of winning both jackpots are 1 in 75 quadrillion - that's 15 zeros - according to data scientists at Allstate. In all, three Mega Millions jackpots have been awarded in 2018.

Then, on Saturday night, Powerball draws for $130 million. "Even if a player doesn't win the jackpot, they can still be a big victor".




Twenty-two jackpots have been won in the month of July since the game began in 2002.

If someone won tonight, the cash value option would have been worth $226 million.

This year, 20-year-old Shane Missler of Port Richey won a $451 million prize on January 5, while Richard Wahl of Vernon, N.J., won $533 million on March 30. The odds of winning are about 1 in 303 million. Those tickets were sold in IL and Pennsylvania. If you match 3 white and 1 yellow, you'll win $200.

Those looking to play Mega Millions have to get their $2 tickets before 10 p.m., according to the statement.

If you snag the winning ticket, the amount can be claimed up to one year from the date it was drawn.
