ATLANTA - The Mega Millions jackpot has been bumped to the second largest in U.S. history: $900 million.
Mega Millions officials said no tickets matched all six numbers for the $667 million grand prize in Tuesday night's drawing. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.
While nobody in Georgia won the big prize, two Georgians did win big on Tuesday night. Officials say one winning ticket worth $1 million was sold in Macon at a Circle K located on the 2500 block of Riverside Drive. Another ticket worth $50,000 was sold in Clayton at a Circle M Food Shop on the 100 block of Highway 441.
“Georgians love big jackpots, so this is an exciting time for us,” Georgia Lottery President and CEO Gretchen Corbin said. “As our jackpots continue to grow, we are grateful to our players and retailers for their support. ”
In addition to the Mega Millions, Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot has grown to $345 million.
It costs $2 to play the game. The odds of matching the jackpot prize is around one in 302 million.
The next Mega Millions drawing will be Friday.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
