Mega Millions: One California ticket wins $530M jackpot

Mega Millions: One California ticket wins $530M jackpot

The Mega Millions jackpot is up to $530 million for Friday night's drawing.

Seven-time lottery game grand prize victor Richard Lustig tips on his advice to win the Mega Million and Powerball jackpots. It's also the first Mega Millions jackpot of the year to jump above the half-billion dollar mark. Since then, 24 twice-weekly drawings have been held without a jackpot victor. It's now up to $530 million, the seventh largest jackpot in the game's history and it's only expected to rise. That's when Hira Singh of Shawnee, Kansas won the $50 million top prize with a ticket he bought at a QuikTrip in Kansas City, Missouri.

Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers - five different numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 - or select Easy Pick. The next drawing is Tuesday, when the jackpot resets to $40 million. The cash option is about $343.9 million.

For the lowest prize of $2, players must match the Mega Ball number. After changing the number of balls drawn, the odds of winning the jackpot has gone from 1 in about 258 million to 1 in roughly 302 million.
