28th December 2017 1:12 PM
The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $306 million after another drawing passed on Tuesday night without a winner. The top prize has now been growing for the past 21 draws, since two ticket holders split $42 million on October 13th.
Mega Millions Results
The winning numbers on Tuesday were 10, 12, 20, 38 and 41, plus Mega Ball 25. While nobody won the jackpot, one lucky player from Washington became $4 million richer after matching all five main white balls and selecting the Megaplier option on their ticket.
Over 730,000 other players picked up prizes in the latest draw, ranging from $2 for matching just the Mega Ball to $10,000 for matching four main numbers plus the Mega Ball. Take a look at the Mega Millions Numbers page for more details about all the prizes given away.
Mega Millions Jackpots
The jackpot now ranks as the 13th largest prize in the history of Mega Millions, and there is every chance it could break into the top ten for the start of the new year if nobody wins on Friday.
A number of changes were made to Mega Millions at the end of October to help create more regular jackpots of such epic proportions, and the top prize is now likely to grow quicker and quicker until it is won.
The current jackpot has a cash value of $191 million, and if there is a winner on Friday they will have to decide whether they want to take a one-off payment or the annuity option. They will also be faced with a number of other decisions, depending on where they live, such as how quickly to come forward and whether to remain anonymous or go public.
Good luck in the drawing!
