No Winners, So Mega Millions Jackpot Grows To $502M

ATLANTA (CBSNEWS.COM) – The winning numbers drawn for Tuesday’s Mega Millions jackpot were 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59, and the Mega Ball number was 13. The jackpot was $458 million, with a one-time cash option of $274 million. Lottery officials announced early Wednesday that no winning tickets were sold. The next drawing will be Friday night, with an estimated jackpot topping the half-billion dollar mark, at $502 million. Tickets cost $2. The sales cutoff time in Texas is 9:45 p.m. There will be a Powerball drawing on Wednesday, but the jackpot is $40 million. But don’t get your hopes up yet: Even with more options for giant payouts, the odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball. The odds of winning both jackpots are one in 75 quadrillion — that’s 15 zeros — according to data scientists at Allstate.
