Mega Millions jackpot grows to $1.2 billion after no winner

The estimated cash payout is $550.2 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to $1.25 billion after no one matched all the numbers on Tuesday.

The winning numbers from Tuesday’s late night draw were 8, 24, 30, 45, 61 and gold Mega Ball 12.

Seven winners were drawn five numbers and will take home a prize of $1 million each (minus tax). A person in Texas got five numbers and had chosen to add Megaplier. They won $4 million. More than half a million people only picked the bonus ball correctly and won just $2.

Tuesday’s $1.1 billion prize was the fourth-largest Mega Millions jackpot ever and the sixth-largest in US lottery history when Powerball jackpots are included.

The jackpot has been building since April. There have been no Mega Millions jackpot winners in 30 consecutive draws since the top prize was last won on April 18.

Players must match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball number to claim the jackpot.

The previous four $1 billion Mega Million jackpots were won in 2018, 2021, 2022 and January 2023.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. Tickets are $2 a game.

The next drawing will take place on Friday 4 August at 11 p.m. ET.
