Mega Millions Results: Tuesday 3rd January

The jackpot is the biggest since someone in California won a record $2.04 billion Powerball prize on Nov. 8.

WASHINGTON – The drought of Mega Millions winners has extended to 23 straight draws after no one matched all six numbers Tuesday night.

The $785 million jackpot for Tuesday night’s drawing was the largest since someone in California won a record $2.04 billion prize playing Powerball on Nov. 8. It now rises to an estimated $940 million.

The winning numbers for Tuesday 3rd January were 25-29-33-41-44 and Mega Ball 18. The Megaplier was 4X.

While nobody won the grand prize, six people matched the first five numbers to win at least $1 million. Players in Maryland, Texas and Virginia won $1 million; Three players in Arizona, Mississippi and South Dakota won the million dollar prize with the Megaplier, for a total of $4 million each.

This stunningly large jackpot is for a winner who chooses to be paid out through an annuity over the age of 29. Almost all winners opt for a one-off, lump-sum cash payment.

The next drawing is on Friday 6th January.

The grand prize is the sixth largest jackpot in US history. No one has matched all six numbers in the game for more than two months. There have been 23 consecutive draws without a big winner, which is unsurprising given the odds of winning the grand prize are only one in 302.6 million.

Lottery players saw multiple chances for a huge jackpot win in 2022. In addition to the $2 billion Powerball, Mega Millions also broke the billion dollar mark last July.
