TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The Mega Millions jackpot continues to climb after no one won the jackpot after Tuesday night’s drawing.
The winning numbers drawn were: 8, 24, 30, 45, 61, and the yellow ball: 12. The Megaplier was 4X.
According to Mega Millions’ website, there were seven $1 million prize winners. Winners were in California, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New York, Texas and Wisconsin. The Texas winner won $5 million after adding Megaplier for $1 more.
No one has won the Mega Million jackpot since April 18. The estimated $1.25 billion prize is now one of the largest in U.S. history.

The next drawing will be held on Friday at 11 p.m.
Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
