The Mega Millions winning numbers were announced Tuesday evening, giving way for a potential $418 million jackpot.
The lottery game’s winning numbers were: 9, 21, 34, 42, 50, and the Mega Ball drawn was 21.
If a winning ticket is claimed, it would mark only the 10th time in Mega Millions' 17-year history that the top prize climbed above $400 million, according to N.J.com. It would also be the 25th largest jackpot in US lottery history.
Tuesday night’s drawing has a cash option of $263.3 million.
No one has claimed a Mega Millions jackpot since March 12, when Missouri lottery player, Hira Singh of Shawnee, Kansas, bought a $50 million winning ticket at a QuikTrip gas station. Since then, 21 twice-weekly drawings have resulted in no jackpot winner.
There was, however, a winning ticket sold in New York that matched five numbers but not the Mega Ball. The non-jackpot winning left one ticket buyer $2 million richer.
