Posted at 10:02 PM, Jul 24, 2018

Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot was the fifth-largest in the history of the 44-state lottery, worth $522 million. The winning numbers were drawn at 11 p.m. ET. 

Here are the numbers:

19-02-04-01-29 Mega Ball: 20

According to the California State Lottery, a winning ticket was sold in San Jose. 

Last Friday, no one drew all six numbers in the drawing worth $433 million. If no one matches all six numbers in Tuesday's drawing, the jackpot could grow to more than $600 million. 

Only two jackpots have reached $600 million in the history of Mega Millions, with the largest jackpot being claimed in 2012 worth $656 million. 

The Mega Millions jackpot has been building since May 4 since a winning ticket was sold in Ohio. 

Mega Millions is played in all states except Hawaii, Alaska, Nevada, Utah, Mississippi and Alabama. The odds of drawing all six numbers in Mega Millions are 1 in nearly 302 million. 

If you didn't match all six numbers, you could still be a winner. Selecting the Mega Ball is worth $2. If you get all five white numbers correct without hitting the Mega Ball, a ticket is worth $1 million.
