The Mega Millions jackpot currently stands at an impressive $344 million, a hefty sum that could be yours if you match tonight's winning numbers.
Drawn at 11 p.m. on Dec. 10,the current winning Mega Millions numbers are 5, 12, 22, 41, and 65 with a Mega Ball of 13.
The jackpot for the lottery has soared recently as no lucky contestant has managed to match all six of the winning digits. However, four players managed to win up to $1 million after Friday's drawing by matching the first five numbers out of the winning sequence of 11, 29, 44, 63, and 64 with a Mega Ball of 3.
Played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the lottery's last lucky winner was located in Maryland. An anonymous man from Anne Arundel County turned in the lucky Oct. 1 ticket in order to get the $198 million pay out. After choosing the cash payment option, winner walked away with a cool $86 million after state and federal taxes.
Even with just one number you can win a $1 prize. It may not be much but it will certainly cover the cost of playing.
If you brought a ticket this week, make sure you check it soon. Don that lucky underwear and grab a four-leaf clover and see if your numbers match up.
