Mega Millions jackpot up to $400 million, next drawing Tuesday

By Rebecca Walezak,

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $400 million.

After Friday’s failure to have any numbers match the drawing, the lotto begins to rise to fantastic numbers. The Associated Press reports that the numbers for the drawing were 7-20-40-54-69, the Mega Ball number was 12 and the Megaplier number was 3. The last time there were winning numbers in the Mega Millions jackpot was January 3.

Winning the Mega Millions jackpot is a 1 in 259 million chance.

Jackpots were made harder to win back In October so that the prizes would be bigger. The biggest prize ever won was in 2012 in the U.S. for $656 million.

Five tickets were reported with 5 of the numbers matching, winning $1 million each. The tickets were purchased in Arkansas, Florida, Virginia, with two purchased in Ohio. Three tickets used the Megaplier, which won $3 million each.

The next drawing will take place on Tuesday at 11 pm Eastern Time, according to NBC News.

If someone gets the winning numbers, it will be the sixth largest jackpot won in the U.S.
