Numbers for Mega Millions drawing

No winning ticket matched all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing.

As lottery fever sizzles over a new record-setting Mega Millions jackpot and a whopper of a Powerball prize, you should know that the D.C. region has produced some massive lottery winners in recent years.

Check your tickets! Here are the winning numbers for Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot.

The jackpot has been growing since it was last won on July 24.

While California didn't sell the Mega Millions jackpot, Lotto officials tweeted that a 5 of 6 victor was sold in San Francisco. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

If you've won less than $600, you can turn in your winning ticket at a lottery retailer in exchange for cash, according to Mega Millions' website. There was no word as to how much that ticket would be worth from lottery officials.

If someone wakes up Wednesday a multi-millionaire, they are encouraged to do a few things before cashing in the ticket.

The largest Powerball jackpot was $1.586 billion, which was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

Although the Mega Millions prize has grown larger, the odds of winning remain the same, at a dismal one in 302.5 million. MA residents have the biggest taste for playing the odds, spending nearly $763 per year on lottery tickets, the study found.
