Des Moines, Iowa – Lottery players grabbed the eighth largest jackpot in US history Tuesday night, thanks to months without a jackpot winner.
The $ 625 million Mega Millions prize is the largest sweepstakes prize in nearly two years. The grand prize for Powerball, another national lottery game, is not far away, at $ 550 million for the Wednesday night draw.
The winning numbers for the Mega Millions match draw Tuesday night were: 12-14-26-28-33, Mega Ball: 09.
The sweepstakes promoted refer to the winnings of those who choose pensions paid over a period of 30 years. Almost all of the jackpot winners take the cash option, which would be estimated at $ 458.8 million for Mega Millions and $ 411.4 million for Powerball.
Those dreaming of instant riches might want to remember that the odds of winning a Powerball are 1 in 292.2 million. It’s steeper for Mega Millions, at a rate of 1 in 302.5 million.
Both Mega Millions and Powerball are played in 45 states plus Washington, D.C. and the US Virgin Islands. Powerball is also offered in Puerto Rico.
