Mega Millions' $1.6 Billion Jackpot Winning Numbers Announced

Mega Millions' $1.6 Billion Jackpot Winning Numbers Announced

The winning numbers have been drawn for the record $1.6 billion Mega Millions lottery jackpot, but it isn't immediately clear if there's a victor.

Tuesday's winning numbers are: 28, 70, 5, 62 and 65 with a Mega Ball of 5. In Michigan, winners are anonymous unless they win Mega Millions or Powerball prizes.

Certain combinations of the five white balls and one gold Mega Ball can get you anywhere from $2 up to $1 million.

Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing will pay out at least $1.6 billion to winning jackpot ticket holders, if there are any, after Friday's already record-setting drawing ended with no ticket matching all six numbers.

With more than $1 billion on the line, CBS 11 News thought some research was in order to help people like Landon who want to play.

"Don't be surprised if you see me back here in a few days", she told lottery officials.

Brenda Jordan of Henderson became the second NC buyer of Megan Millions tickets in a week to win $1 million after also buying a ticket in a different scratch-off game. "Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that unicorn feeling of, like, 'maybe it'll be me, '" CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger said. The number two lottery jackpot in US and world history was a $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot.

The amount of prize money the tickets will win is still undetermined, according to California Lottery. Powerball also is played in Puerto Rico. That game itself is now at a monster jackpot, though a small one relative to Mega Millions, at $620 million ahead of Wednesday's drawing. Last year, they spent $72.97 billion on traditional lottery tickets, according to Gallup. "They're trying to hit it big". Tonight's Mega Millions drawing will be at 11 p.m. In most other states, tickets may be purchased up until 15 minutes prior to the drawing -10:45 p.m. ET.
