Nobody matched all the numbers and the jackpot rolled over to more than half a billion dollars. The ticket was purchased at Circle K #3140, located at 801 Highway 96. Winners have not come forward to claim the Atlanta and Braselton prizes yet.

Both Mega Millions and Powerball - which now has a jackpot of $40 million after a New Hampshire woman claimed $560 million earlier this year - have seen hefty grand prizes lately, largely thanks to rule changes that made it more hard to win the jackpot.

The next Mega Millions drawing will take place on Friday, March 30, at 11 p.m. E.T.

Don't worry if you forgot to buy a lottery ticket before Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing. Mega Millions also offers a new optional $3 wager Just the Jackpot that allows players to receive two entries for a chance to win the game's jackpot prize only.

The $502 million prize is the annuity option, in which a sole victor is paid over 29 years. More than 1.8 million students have received HOPE, and more than 1.6 million 4-year-olds have attended the statewide, voluntary prekindergarten program.
