    UPDATE 12 p.m. 10/19: Lottery officials announced the Mega Millions jackpot is now at $1 billion.


    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Mega Millions jackpot is now up to $970 million, making it the second-largest lottery jackpot of all-time

    Officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the Mega Millions prize Tuesday night. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

    The largest lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016.

    The jackpot has been growing since July, when some California office workers won $543 million.

    The odds of winning the jackpot aren't good, at one in 302.5 million.

    Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
