Louisiana Lottery officials in Baton Rouge have verified that a single ticket sold for Tuesday's Mega Millions multi-state lottery drawing matched all the numbers needed to claim the game's top prize. The Mega Millions jackpot of $560 million was the ninth-largest prize ever awarded by the game.

There had been no jackpot winner in the Mega Millions multi-state lottery game since March 26th, 2024. In that drawing a single ticket sold in New Jersey claimed the game's top prize which was posted as $1.13 billion. Those facts were corroborated by the Louisiana Lottery website. 

The Mega Millions game has produced a number of big-money winners in Louisiana. However, the game's top prize has never gone to a ticket sold in The Boot. If you didn't see the drawing from Tuesday night, here it is.

If you were unable to watch the video the numbers drawn were:

19   37   40   63   69   Mega Ball   17  Megaplier x3

Use these numbers for reference only and verify your ticket by checking it against the Official Mega Millions website or the Official Louisiana Lottery Website Those sites can not only help you verify your tickets and check your numbers on multiple tickets but they can offer instructions on how to claim your prizes.

Our source at the Louisiana Lottery confirmed the big win but suggested in their comments that Louisiana Mega Millions players kind of got skunked. The top prize won in Louisiana for Tuesday's Mega Millions game was only $600. There were also eleven $200 winners sold in Louisiana for last night's drawing.

Where Was the $560 Million Mega Millions Winner Sold?

Our source at Mega Millions tells us the jackpot winner was sold in Illinois. The winner purchased the ticket online via the  Illinois Lottery website. The winner did not choose the annuity option so their actual prize from last night's win will be $264 million.

There were two Match 5 Million winners sold in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing. Those instant millionaires are waking up this morning in California and Maryland. By rule, the jackpot for the next Mega Millions drawing will be $20 million. That drawing will take place on Friday, June 7, 2024.

If you want to try your hand at becoming an instant millionaire your next opportunity will come tonight in the Powerball multi-state lottery game. That jackpot is estimated to be $185 million for the annuity and $86 million for the lump sum or "cash" option. That drawing will be held at 9:59 tonight.

Not all lottery tickets are winners so we encourage responsible play if you choose to play these or any games of chance. If you need help with a gambling problem you may call 1-800-GAMBLER. The call is free and so is the referral to professional counseling. Good Luck.
