Mega Millions announces winner of $1.13 billion jackpot

The winning numbers Tuesday night were: 7, 11, 22, 29, 38 with a gold Mega Ball of 4 and a 2X Megaplier

The Mega Millions jackpot announced a winner in Tuesday night's estimated $1.13 billion drawing after 30 previous drawings without a winner.

The winning numbers Tuesday night were: 7, 11, 22, 29, 38 and gold Mega Ball 4. The Megaplier was 2X.

The winning ticket was sold in New Jersey. This was the fifth-largest prize in the history of the game, Mega Millions said in a news release.

In addition to the jackpot, 12 players — one each in California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio and two each in Florida, Georgia and New York — matched all five white balls to win $1 million and another player in New York matched all five white balls and the Megaplier to win $3 million.

"Lottery fever continues to spread throughout the country," Georgia Lottery President and CEO Gretchen Corbin, lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium, said ahead of Tuesday's drawing. 

The $1.13 billion grand prize carries a one-time cash payout option of $537.5 million. 

Winners typically select the cash prize over the Mega Millions annuity paid out as one immediate payment followed by 29 annual payments.

The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 302,575,350, according to the game.
