No Mega Millions winner, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion

The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in US history.

The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday night's drawing is now $1.6 billion, and the Powerball jackpot for Wednesday night's drawing is $620 million.

The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in USA history.

The next drawing will be Tuesday.

The jackpot for the Powerball lottery drawing ballooned to $620 million after no winners were announced on October 20.

Powerball, which held the record for the largest US lottery prize of £1.213 billion ($1.586 bn) in 2016, will hold a separate draw on Saturday.

Check your ticket, though, because five people won $1 million in the drawing, including one person in New Jersey.

The lucky player matched all five white numbers drawn but was just one number shy of the jackpot.

The Mega Millions is coordinated by the Multi-State Lottery Association, along with several other lottery games including one called Powerball. You can pick your own numbers or the computer will do it for you.

For an additional $1 you can get a "Megaplier" ticket that will increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 62-16-54-57-69 while the Powerball was 23.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren't good.
