Here are the winning $667 million Mega Millions jackpot lottery numbers

NEW YORK — Check your tickets! The numbers have been drawn for the Mega Millions jackpot, worth $667 million, the largest grand prize in the game’s history.

The numbers are: 69, 45, 61, 3, 49, — Megaball is 9

The Mega Millions’ is now $667 million, and Wednesday’s Powerball jackpot stands at $345 million. Together, that’s over a billion dollars now.

The reason these jackpots have ballooned to such monstrous proportions is because, well, no one has won in a while. According to a release from Mega Millions, the last Mega Millions jackpot was won July 24, netting 11 co-workers a combined $543 million. The last Powerball jackpot, which totaled $245.6 million, was won August 11 by a man in Staten Island, New York.

Believe it or not, this week’s combined billion-dollar haul is not the biggest prize in the lottery’s history. That honor goes to a 2016 Powerball jackpot, which clocked in at $1.586 billion (although it was shared by three winners).

Of course, the actual amount you’ll win is considerably less than a billion dollars, not just because of taxes and annuities and fine print things. The amount you will win is likely $0, because the odds of winning either jackpot are one in several hundred million.

Sure sure, someone needs to win eventually, we know. But it’s not going to be you.*

*OK, almost certainly not. 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.
