Mega Millions jackpot nears record

Gerry Broome  Associated Press

Unidentified players in Minnesota and Nebraska, however, won "Match 5" prizes, officials said.

One "Match 5" victor was reported in Arkansas, according to the site.

The next drawing will be held Tuesday, Oct. 13, and there is a $372.6 million cash option for the $654 million jackpot. That distinction goes to the $1.586 Powerball jackpot in 2016 that was shared by three winners, including a Chino Hills couple.

The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $372 million.

Feeling lucky? Then you may want to buy a Mega Millions ticket, as the multi-state lottery game approaches a record jackpot.

If there is no jackpot victor in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing, the estimated annuity value for the Friday, Oct. 19 drawing will roll to $868 million, with an estimated cash value of $495 million.

Mega Millions is not the only game in town.

If you can get 2+ innings out of one of those guys before a reliever and then eventually bringing in Kimbrel, that could do it. Indeed, the last time the Astros failed to go deep in a playoff game was Game 5 of last year's ALCS against the Yankees.

The winning numbers were 11, 14, 32, 43, and 65 with a Powerball of 15.

Although the Mega Millions prize has grown larger, the odds of winning remain the same at one in 302.5 million.

Still, even the combined total wouldn't break the record US lottery prize.

Before claiming the prize, the lucky victor must first sign the back of the ticket to prove ownership.

Three other Mega Millions jackpots have been won this year: $451 million on January 5 (Florida), $533 million on March 30 (New Jersey) and $142 million on May 4 (Ohio).

Powerball drawing days are Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the next Powerball drawing, worth a prize of $345 million, will be on Wednesday, October 17. Powerball reaches all those areas plus Puerto Rico.

The winning ticket in July was purchased at Ernie's Liquors, located at 2808 South White Road in San Jose, which is in Santa Clara County in California. "Jackpot fever is definitely sweeping the country!"
