The Powerball jackpot during that run-up in 2017 reached $758.7 million and became the largest lottery jackpot in the world ever won by a single ticket.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot is worth an estimated $343 million, with a cash payout of about $215 million. Mega Millions and Powerball are offering Georgia Lottery players two very large jackpots totaling almost $783 million dollars. SiLive will also post the winning numbers. The odds of winning the jackpot with a $1 ticket are 1-in-13,983,816.

The Mega Millions drawing is televised every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. on selected television stations.
