DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Numbers have been drawn for the estimated $400 million Mega Millions lottery jackpot, but there was no immediate word on whether someone is holding a winning ticket.
The numbers drawn Tuesday night were: 11, 19, 24, 33 and 51 with a Mega Ball of 7.
The jackpot is the sixth-largest lottery prize in U.S. history, with a lump-sum option of paying out $224 million.
If no one hits all six numbers, the jackpot will rollover for Friday’s drawing and start marching toward $500 million.
Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize.
Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
