The jackpot for the Mega Millions has reached a new record of $667 million, with an estimated cash value of $380 million after no one claimed the jackpot this Tuesday.

The chance of winning the Powerball jackpot is 292.2 million to one. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

It wasn't too long ago a Michigander won the Mega Millions.

The Mega Millions jackpot Friday is now $900 million-or $513 million in a lump sum payment. But cheer up! There are often secondary prizes to these huge drawings that can be worth millions of dollars, and a shocking amount of them go unclaimed - probably because people get too focused on the biggest possible way to win.

That places them second in the division, behind the Bengals (4-2), as they lost to them earlier in the season. The 24-year-old is set to strut his stuff again when the Titans take on the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $970 million, inching ever-closer to the $1 billion mark.

Ernie Fiesta, a North Platte resident since the 1970's, said, "I could move back to Hawaii, buy a house, boat and fish all day, and help my family out". "I mean, I am struggling to pay bills big time so it would definitely be helpful". They may also set a record (or come close) for earnings on a single Powerball or Mega Millions ticket. The odds of getting all six of numbers for that game is 1 in 292 million.

There are several other ways you can win tonight.

The drawing for Powerball's drawing is on Wednesday just before 8 p.m.
