Mega Millions winning numbers announced for $458 million jackpot

31 workers win the lottery

The winning numbers drawn for Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot were 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59, and the Mega Ball number was 13. The jackpot was $458 million, with a one-time cash option of $274 million.

Lottery officials announced early Wednesday that no winning tickets were sold. The next drawing will be Friday night, with an estimated jackpot topping the half-billion dollar mark, at $502 million.

Tickets cost $2. Sales time cut-offs vary by state but are usually one to two hours before the drawing.   

There will be a Powerball drawing on Wednesday, but the jackpot is $40 million.

But don't get your hopes up yet: Even with more options for giant payouts, the odds of winning a jackpot remain abysmal at 1 in 258.9 million for Mega Millions and 1 in 292.2 million for Powerball.

The odds of winning both jackpots are one in 75 quadrillion -- that's 15 zeros -- according to data scientists at Allstate.

The average American spends about $200 a year on lottery tickets, though residents of some states spend far more. According to a study by LendEDU, the average Massachusetts resident spends $735 annually on lottery tickets. Rhode Islanders plop down $514 a year. And if you live in Delaware or New York, you're likely spending about $400 a year, or $33 per month (see map below).

The odds of winning "scratchers" -- those little instant winning tickets that you can buy for prices ranging from $1 to $50 -- are better, but it's still no way to get rich.
