- The Washington Times - Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Tuesday evening’s Mega Millions drawing offered a top prize of $63 million in the multi-state lottery game that hasn’t seen a jackpot winner in almost a month.

The five white balls drawn were 7-13-25-51-70 with a Megaball of 9.

The Tuesday jackpot would be worth almost $40 million if taken in a cash lump sum, with almost 40 percent going for federal taxes, with the possibility of state taxes as well. The $1 tickets are sold in 44 states and the District of Columbia.

If nobody picked all six numbers, the next drawing would be Friday.

The last jackpot winner came in the Jan. 8 drawing, but the $169 million winner, who purchased the ticket in New York, has yet to come forward.
