Mega Millions Lottery forms are pictured at Ted's State Line Mobil in Methuen, Mass., July 24, 2018.

The last time anyone won the jackpot was July 24, when a group from California claimed a $543 million prize. No one won Saturday night's jackpot; the winning numbers were 11-14-32-43-65 and a Powerball of 15.

The combined Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots for drawings Tuesday and Wednesday nights total $999 million. "With a little luck, we may still break that record".

"Players are having fun and ticket sales are growing, which is great news for the education programs we fund", said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO of the Tennessee Education Lottery.

Although the Mega Millions prize has grown larger, the odds of winning remain the same at one in 302.5 million.

At $667 million, someone holding a lone winning ticket would have the option of taking a cash payout of $380 million, according to the game's website.

Mega Millions is not the only game in town. There were 2,651,183 "winning" tickets at all prize levels in the October 12 drawing. It's the second-largest in Mega Millions history.

Fifty-five tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball for the $10,000 third prize; seven of those are actually worth $30,000 each because they included the multiplier.

The next Powerball drawing will be held on Wednesday.
