Another Mega Millions drawing has come and gone without anyone winning a major prize.

No one was able to correctly guess the six numbers and secure the estimated $940 million jackpot, increasing the lottery prize to an estimated $1.1 billion for the next drawing on Tuesday evening.

The award is one of the three most significant in American history.

For the past two months, 24 lottery drawings have gone by without a grand prize winner due to the slim chances of winning, which are estimated to be 1 in 302.6 million.

The estimated grand prize of $1.1 billion is achievable if the winner opts to receive the annuity, with payments made yearly over a period of 29 years. However, the cash option, estimated at $568.7 million for Tuesday's drawing, is more commonly chosen by the winners.

Pat McDonald, the Ohio lottery director and lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium, released a statement on Saturday early morning expressing his pleasure over the $1 billion mark reached by Mega Millions again. He also encouraged players to have fun with the jackpot run while still staying within their entertainment budget.
