Awaiting word on a Mega Millions winner

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

The winning Mega Millions numbers are white balls 29-64-46-53-73 and yellow ball 10.

The consortium of lottery organizations that runs Mega Millions says if any ticket matches all five white balls and the yellow ball Tuesday night it would win a jackpot of an estimated $454 million.

Paula Otto, executive director of the Virginia Lottery and lead director for Mega Millions, said before the drawing that the lottery consortium may not know whether there is a winner until about midnight Central time.

If someone wins it could be the 7th largest jackpot in U.S. history and the largest since a $429.6 million Powerball prize won by a New Jersey family on May 7.
