Mega Millions winning numbers for $1.6 billion jackpot announced

According to NBC News, the numbers that have won the Mega Millions the most since 2017 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 10, 17, 28, and 42.

Meanwhile in California, lottery officials confirmed that there were no winning tickets issued in the state for the record jackpot, but there were a number of tickets that matched 5 of 6 numbers, including one in San Francisco. The one-time cash option is estimated at $905 million - still nothing to sneeze at.

Get in line. Delmar Baracani of Spring Valley (left to right), Eliseo Garcia of DePue and Joe Nelson of Princeton stand in line to purchase Mega Millions jackpot tickets Monday morning at the Spring Valley Mini-Market. With more than 300 million possible combinations, the odds of winning are 1 in 302,575,350.

Additionally, Gamblers Anonymous is hosting a closed meeting on Tuesday from 7:15 p.m. - 9 p.m.at the Wyndham Building on Bruceville Road. The odds of winning are so remote, so why do people play it? "Like today ... every single sale I've had has literally had a Mega Millions ticket attached to it". The lump sum cash payout is estimated at $354.3 million. When so many people rush to play as a jackpot soars, the chances increase that two or three tickets - of the millions of tickets sold - will match.

Players who prefer to remain anonymous are in luck if they live in the Lone Star state. The "I'm The One" hitmaker had so many tickets he needed a black jumbo binder clip to keep them all together.

On October 19th there were some winners, just not for the jackpot.

According to the Maryland and Texas Lotteries, if there is no victor then the jackpot could soar to a whopping two billion dollars. The odds of winning the top prize were 1 in 258,890,850.
