One lucky player, although, did match all the white ball winning numbers but not the Mega Ball to win the game's second prize of $1 million.

The victor will shatter the previous record for highest Mega Millions jackpot awarded: a $656 million payday in March 2012.

The jackpot has been growing since July 24 when a group of 11 office workers in San Jose, CA, beat the odds and won $543 million. The odds of winning the jackpot are now 1 in 302,575,350.

The estimated cash value, if you're lucky enough to match all six numbers, is $380 million.

That ticket was sold in Madisonville Kentucky, according to lottery officials.

No one matched all the numbers in Tuesday's drawing, so the jackpot is expected to hit $900 million. But only recently has the game been shelling out massive jackpots. The increase reflected a surge in ticket sales. The previous record was $656 million, shared by winners in 2012 in three states. It's the second largest payout in lottery history.
