A giant Mega Millions lottery jackpot ballooned to $1.02 billion after no one matched all six numbers Tuesday night and won the top prize.

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 07-29-60-63-66, with a Mega Ball of 15. The new estimated jackpot will be the nation’s fourth-largest lottery prize.

The top jackpot of $1.586 billion came in a Powerball drawing on Jan. 13, 2016. That’s followed by Mega Millions jackpots of $1.537 billion won Oct. 23, 2018, in South Carolina, and $1.050 billion won Jan. 22, 2021, in Michigan.

The current Mega Millions jackpot has grown so large because no one has matched the game’s six selected numbers since April 15. That’s 29 consecutive drawings without a big winner.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The game is coordinated by state lotteries.
