There was not a victor for last night's Mega Millions jackpot - bringing it now to an estimated $868 million.

The Mega Millions numbers for Tuesday night's drawing were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

Friday's drawing will be the game's 25th since the last time the jackpot was hit, when a group of 11 co-workers in California split the $543 million prize on July 24. On Aug. 15, 2012, Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won a $337 million Powerball jackpot.

Three other people won $10,000 by matching four numbers and the Mega Ball, including someone who bought a ticket at Welcome Food at 510 S. Camellia Fort Valley.

The ticket, which matched the five numbers drawn Tuesday, but not the Mega Ball, was sold at Big's Aztec Corner Store in San Antonio.

The odds of winning the jackpot aren't good.

The Saudi government, it said, would shield the prince by blaming an intelligence official for the bungled operation. Turkish officials say they fear a Saudi hit team killed Khashoggi, who has been missing almost two weeks.

The odds of winning Tuesday night's MegaMillions drawing are one in 302.5 million.

It is now the third largest in U.S. Lottery history.

Mega Millions is played in 44 US states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands. Alaska, Hawaii, Nevada, Utah, Alabama and MS do not participate.

Together, the two jackpots top $1 billion.

The Powerball jackpot up for grabs Wednesday night will be a hefty $345 million, with a cash value of $199 million.
