The prize remains unclaimed. No winning ticket was sold that matched Tuesday night’s drawing for the $667 million prize.

The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9.

Therefore the prize remains unclaimed, and is currently listed at $868,000,000, with a cash-out option of $494,500,000.

Mega Millions tickets cost $2 to play, with the next drawing scheduled for Friday October 19 at 10 p.m.

Good luck playing, just remember the odds of correctly matching all five numbers and the Mega Ball are 1 in 302,575,305.
