The odds of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot are quite slim, but even so, people are still gifting the tickets for their friends and family.

Mega Millions players will find out if this Christmas will be something special (and if they're friends will expect better presents) Tuesday night at 10 p.m.

What were the winning numbers?

After no one won the jackpot on Tuesday, the prize is now up to a whopping $348 million, with a $210.2 million cash option.

A Christmas miracle happened for a lucky new millionaire in Chesterfield.

However, since this agreement was first signed, Japan has periodically been granted more freedom over its own national defense. Local media have said the purchases could total more than one trillion yen ($8.8 billion).

For the drawing, players can buy a ticket in stores or through the Illinois Lottery website or app. The Powerball jackpot is an estimated $294 million with a cash option of $177.6 million. The chance of drawing all six numbers is only one-in-302.5 million.

The biggest-ever Mega Millions prize - $1.537 billion - went to the holder of a single ticket in a drawing on October 23 this year.

There have been no Christmas Day grand prize winners so far, Mega Millions confirmed.

Earlier this year, there was a ticket sold in SC for the $1.5 billion lottery ticket during the October 24 drawing. He had purchased Megaplier for an additional dollar, which quadrupled his winnings to $4 million, according to lottery officials.
