Mega Millions numbers selected for Tuesday’s $1.6B prize

Mega Millions could balloon to $2B if nobody wins next drawing 12,000 tickets sold per minute as Mega Millions’ jackpot hits $1.6 billion

Not surprisingly, the most Mega Million jackpot winners in the past five years have come from states with the largest populations.

The numbers drawn in Tuesday night's drawing are 5, 28, 62, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 5.

The jackpot is now the largest in US lottery history, surpassing a 2016 Powerball jackpot that previously held the title.

Are you the lucky recipient of a (gulp) $1.6 billion ... yes, billion with a "B" ... winning Mega Millions ticket?

Tuesday night's Mega Millions estimated grand prize has hit a staggering $1.6bn, continuing a trend of giant jackpots. "He's selfish. He should know other people need that money more than him", one person wrote in the IG comments.

The self-driving capability that Tesla Inc. customers have been able to pay for but not activate for two years is going on hiatus. In New York, the $2,000 subsidy would get the price for the new Model 3 to $35,500 for buyers who meet the December 31 deadline.

In Kentucky you have until 10:45 p.m.to get your tickets tonight. It's the biggest potential payout in the history of lotteries, eclipsing the previous record $1.586 billion Powerball prize paid out to winners in California, Florida and Tennessee back in January 2016.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11. If no one ends up reporting that they've got winning tickets for the jackpot, it could then rise to $2 billion. Under the old system, players picked five numbers from one to 75, and a Mega number from one to 15. But the odds aren't especially favorable, at about 1 in 88 quadrillion (that's 88,000,000,000,000,000). That game itself is now at a monster jackpot, though a small one relative to Mega Millions, at $620 million ahead of Wednesday's drawing.

The average American spends about $223 per year on lottery tickets, according to a survey from LENDedu. "Our obsession with lotteries, with gambling, is that unicorn feeling of, like, 'maybe it'll be me, '" CBS News business analyst Jill Schlesinger said. But officials say with so many tickets being purchased, the likelihood of rollover becomes increasingly slim.

For Henderson, he enjoys hearing what people would do with the money.
