Tony Dejak Associated Press The Mega Millions jackpot for Friday’s drawing has reached a record-high $900 million

The winning numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69, and the megaball of 9.

Lottery officials increased the estimated jackpot for Tuesday night's drawing from $654 million to $667 million, making it the third-largest grand prize in US history. The cash option for the jackpot is $380 million.

The $667 million is up for grabs in Tuesday's drawing. The Mega Millions drawing is not only the largest in the game's history, it's also the third largest in the U.S. lottery jackpot history. Lottery officials also recommend the victor contact an attorney or financial advisory to help with the process.

Roland Reyes claimed the prize on behalf of his group, saying they made a decision to play on a whim when they saw how large the jackpot had become. The cash option is usually favored by almost all winners.

The lottery prize is the country's third highest on record, trailing two Powerball jackpots, including a $1.586 billion payout in 2016. The amount you will win is likely $0, because the odds of winning either jackpot are one in several hundred million.

The prize pool could rise even more next drawing on Friday. North Dakotans are on the opposite end of the spectrum, spending about $44 per year on the lottery, or the lowest average figure among residents of all 50 states.
