The jackpot keeps swelling because nobody has won since July 24, when 11 workers in a California office shared $543 million.

The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61 and 69 with the Mega Ball of 9.

The last time Mega Millions had a jackpot victor was July 24th. The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $380 million. If someone wins the jackpot, it would mark the second-largest lottery grand prize in US history. And one of those, sold in San Antonio, had the Megaplier option, available in most states for an extra $1. On April 22, 2005, a Port Huron couple, Ralph and Mary Stebbins, won $208 million playing Mega Millions.

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

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson Call Off Engagement
Davidson previously had Grande's bunny-ears logo tattooed just under his left ear. However, TMZ reported Sunday that the two have called the engagement off.

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).

Lottery tickets are sold at US$2 each in kiosks, supermarkets and gas stations in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. Combined with the Powerball jackpot of $345 million, the total lottery winnings has climbed to well over a billion dollars.

The Powerball is set to be drawn Wednesday night. MA residents have the biggest taste for playing the odds, spending nearly $763 per year on lottery tickets, the study found.
