This is a story you’ve heard before: No one won the Mega Millions jackpot.
The estimated prize for the multi-state lottery was $1.1 billion for Tuesday’s drawing, which is so large because no one has won since April 18.
Last month, someone who bought a Powerball ticket in Los Angeles won a more than $1 billion jackpot.
In the Mega Millions game, it was the fifth time in the game’s history that the jackpot went above $1 billion.
Both games made changes years ago that decreased the chance of winning a jackpot — which means it will grow larger — and more likely that someone would win smaller prizes.
All of Mega Millions’ previous jackpots over $1 billion occurred after changes to the game were announced in 2017.
The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
