The Mega Millions jackpot hit $475 million ahead of Tuesday night’s drawing, one of the top 10 largest prizes in the game’s history.
The cash option for the jackpot is $319.4 million before taxes are factored in, which can take a sizable chunk of the winnings.
However, the pot was still the ninth largest on record.
Tuesday's winning numbers: 3, 5, 56, 61, 66 and the Mega number 4.
Two Mega Millions jackpots have been won so far in 2021.
The year started off strong as the jackpot surpassed $1 billion in January – and a winning ticket was sold then in Michigan.
A New York couple claimed the $96 million prize drawn in February.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot won on a single ticket was $1.537 billion in 2018. The game has awarded 21 jackpots worth more than $300 million.
If no winner is drawn on Tuesday, the next Mega Millions drawing will take place on Friday.
