3-month Mega Millions jackpot winless streak goes on, now $468M

Nobody won the $430 million Mega Millions jackpot Friday.

The winning numbers were 3-18-41-44-68 and a Mega ball of 3.

The next drawing, Tuesday at 8 p.m. PDT, will be worth an estimated $468 million with a cash option of $316.2 million.

A jackpot has not been won since Feb. 16.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302.6 million, according to Lottery USA.

Two Mega Millions jackpots have been won in 2021. The first, a whopping $1.05 billion prize on Jan. 22, went to a group of players in Michigan. It was the second-largest jackpot in the history of the game. Not even a month later, $96 million was won by a New York couple on Feb. 16.

Nye County updates staff mask policy

After the county officially set its newest mask policy in May, members of the general public attending Nye County Commission meetings have, for the most part, been unmasked but for county staff, the requirement to wear a face mask had remained in place.
