The odds of getting the Mega Millions jackpot are one in 259 million. The winning numbers Friday night are 25, 17, 71, 9, 63 and Mega Ball 4. The game's $307 million jackpot has a cash option of $193.2 million.
The Mega Millions jackpot, which will be drawn Tuesday, is an estimated $346 million, the game's highest jackpot since someone won a $540 million jackpot July 8, 2016 on a ticket sold in Indiana. The winning ticket from Wednesday night's drawing was sold at Pilot Travel Center on Route 173 in Hampton. Drawings are televised live at 10:59 p.m. on New York Lottery draw stations. Players won two other jackpots in 2017.
Powerball tickets can be purchased up until 10 p.m. on the day of the drawing.
The most recent big Mega Millions win - $536 million in July 2016 - was the third-largest in the game's history, and the seventh-largest in USA history. Tickets sold in California, Florida and Tennessee each won a share of that world-record setting jackpot on January 13, 2016.
