The Mega Millions jackpot is ascending into rarefied air.

For Tuesday’s drawing, the jackpot has risen to $790 million, with a cash option of $464.4 million – the third-highest Mega Millions jackpot ever and the fourth-highest jackpot of any game, according to the Mega Millions website.

The top jackpot of $1.586 billion came in a Powerball drawing on January 13, 2016. That’s followed by Mega Millions jackpots of $1.537 billion won Oct. 23, 2018 in South Carolina, and $1.050 billion won Jan. 22, 2021 in Michigan.

The current Mega Millions jackpot rose after no ticket in Friday’s drawing matched all six numbers – 14, 40, 60, 64 and 66, plus the gold Mega Ball 16 – for the $630 million jackpot (cash option of $359.7 million).

However, four tickets matched the five white balls with three winners (in Delaware, New Jersey and New York) getting $3 million each, because they included the optional Megaplier. The fourth, sold in Virginia, is worth $1 million.

So far, the biggest Mega Millions jackpot this year was $426 million, won January 28 in California – followed by $128 million won in New York March 8 and $110 million won in Minnesota April 12.
