  • Mega Millions and Powerball lottery tickets

"Lucky retailers" qualify as spots that have paid out on average $4,000 per week in winning tickets.

The winning numbers were: 5-28-62-65-70 and Mega Ball 5.

However, more than two months later, the lucky victor still hasn't come forward to claim their prize. The cash option is an estimated $193.7 million.

Matching every number in the Mega Millions for Tuesday night's drawing wins $321 million.

The biggest ever Powerball payout was a $1.586 billion grand prize in 2016. The chance of drawing all six numbers is only one-in-302.5 million.

Meanwhile, Mega Millions are not the only popular lottery draw in the US.

Shah Rukh Khan’s earnest request for Zero
Despite having zero competition at the box office, the SRK's solo movie released this week failed to generate great business. The picture uploaded on micro-blogging site Twitter, by Gauri Khan , drips with festive cheer coupled with love and warmth.

If the money isn't claimed by late April, the money will return to the 44 states that hold Mega Millions lotteries.

The grand prize has grown to $321 million after a nine-week spell without a victor.

"Mega Millions and Powerball jackpots give people a reason to dream a little", said Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery.

No one has won either lottery since October.

Earlier this year, there was a ticket sold in SC for the $1.5 billion lottery ticket during the October 24 drawing.
