The Mega Millions jackpot ballooned to an estimated $977 million after nobody won the grand prize in Tuesday night’s drawing.

The winning numbers drawn Tuesday night were 24, 46, 49, 62 and 66 with a Mega ball of 7. The Megaplier was 2X.

While nobody won the estimated $875 million jackpot Tuesday night, four players — one each in California, Florida, Texas and Virginia — matched all five white balls to win the game’s second-tier prize of $1 million.
