The Mega Millions jackpot for 06/25/19 climbed to $60 million, and the drawing for Tuesday has happened.

The winning numbers drawn were: 24-33-45-47-61 with a Mega Ball of 17 and Megaplier once again of 3.

The 06/25/19 jackpot was estimated at $60 million, with a cash option of $39.2 million. The total jackpot could have increase depending on the number of tickets sold around the country prior to the drawing.

The numbers last Friday 06/21/19 were: 13-30-36-48-62 with a Mega Ball of 18. The Megaplier was 3. There was no grand prize winner Friday, but there were two tickets that matched all five white balls correctly for the second prize of $1 million. They were sold in Maryland and Washington, but neither chose the Megaplier for an extra $1 that would have made their winnings worth $3 million.

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery and one of America's two biggest lottery jackpot games. Jackpots start at $40 million, and other prizes pay from $1 million to $2 million or more with a Megaplier. Tickets are $2 and odds of winning with a $2 Mega Millions ticket are one in 303 million.

The most recent winning jackpot ticket for $522 million was sold in San Diego, California, at Sorrento Deli Mart. The winner has not yet filled out claim forms with the California Lottery. Sorrento Deli Mart will collect a retailer bonus of $1 million for selling the winning ticket. That $1 million is from the California Lottery, and is not subtracted from the winner's grand prize.

Winners in California have 180 days from the date of the drawing to redeem their ticket to claim their winnings.
