Mega Millions jackpot heats up to $735 million: When is the next lottery drawing?

All eyes are on the Mega Millions lottery ahead of the next drawing this week with a jackpot worth over $700 million, the sixth-largest in the game's history.

The jackpot currently sits at an estimated $735 million with a cash option of $356.7 million before Tuesday's drawing, and if there are no winners, that prize will continue to grow.

No one has won the Mega Millions since December of last year, when two tickets in California shared the $394 million jackpot.

The largest jackpot ever won in the Mega Millions lottery was in August 2023, when a single ticket won the $1.602 billion prize out of Neptune Beach, Florida.

When are the Mega Millions drawings? Mega Millions drawings are every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. ET. The next drawing is Tuesday, March 12.

The winning numbers from the Friday, March 8 drawing were 19, 20, 22, 47 and 58. The Mega Ball was 1 and the Megaplier was 3X.

While there were no jackpot winners, there were Match 5 $1 million winners in Georgia and Texas.
