One of the largest Mega Millions jackpots in history finally has a winner!

A Mega Millions player in New Jersey won the jackpot worth $1.13 billion, on Tuesday night, ending the 31-drawing drought. 

The winning numbers were 7, 11, 22, 29, 38, and the gold Mega ball 4.

With a winning ticket finally being announced the $1.13 billion jackpot is the fifth-largest prize in the lottery’s history. 

Additionally, the winner from The Garden State can receive the massive prize in annual payments or a one-time lump sum estimated at $537.5 million. 

Meanwhile, thirteen players in California, Colorado, Florida (2), Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York (2) and Ohio were able to match all five white balls for the $1 million prize.

A New York player won $2 million while playing the Megaplier. 

The odds of winning the Mega Millions are an unbelievable 1 in 302,575,350.

The latest win on Tuesday night comes as the last winner of the Mega Millions was on December 8th, when two tickets in California matched the numbers for the $395 million prize. 

The biggest prize ever, a staggering $1.602 billion, was sold in August 2023 to a winner in Neptune Beach, Florida. 

The jackpot will now reset to its default $20 million. 

The specific lottery game is played in 45 states, as well as Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
