In 1 hour, Texans bought $1M in Mega Millions ahead of $1B drawing

The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

The $1 billion jackpot is the largest Mega Millions jackpot ever.

No one won the latest Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion.

The jackpot for Saturday night's Powerball drawing, meanwhile, is the eighth largest in the game's history at an estimated $470 million.

If so, the $1 billion-plus will be paid out over 20 years - or you can opt for an immediate cash option of $565.6 million. The federal government takes 25% before the check is handed to the victor, and collects remaining taxes when due.
