  • Mega Millions Ticket Sold In San Francisco Matches 5 Of 6 Numbers

The $667 million jackpot is the largest in Mega Millions history and the third largest in US history.

The Mega Millions jackpot rose from $667 million after no one hit the six numbers drawn on Tuesday, extending a winless streak for the top prize that has lasted since July.

To win the jackpot, tickets must match five white ball numbers plus the mega ball. The chance of matching all six numbers and taking home the grand prize is one in 302.5 million, while the odds of winning any Mega Millions prize are one in 24, Reuters reported.

PREVIOUS STORY: The total jackpot combined for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing and Wednesday night's Powerball drawing is $999,000,000.

The Tuesday drawing had grown to the largest in the game's history, a whopping $667 million.
