The winning numbers in Tuesday night's $1.6 billion Mega Millions drawing were

                            5    28    62    65    70     *5

The cash option in the world's largest lottery jackpot was an incredible $913-million.  The last time someone won the Mega Millions jackpot was back in July when 11 people in an office pool shared $543-million.

What are the chances of winning the jackpot?  1 in 302,575,350 per ticket.

After grocery shopping I had $6.00 in my hand so before walking out I decided to invest that 6 bucks in some Mega Millions numbers.  Not one of my numbers matched the winning numbers....not one.  But I'm sure that's pretty typical of most people.

New York State has the most Mega Millions winners over the past few years with seven. California has six.  Illinois has four.

Meanwhile, Wednesday's Powerball jackpot has grown to $620-million.
