Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot was the largest in the history of the 44-state lottery, worth $1.6 billion. It also marked the largest jackpot in US history. The winning numbers were drawn at 9 p.m. 

Here are the numbers:

5, 28, 62, 65, 70 Mega Ball: 5

It should be known later Tuesday or early Wednesday morning if there was a winner for Tuesday's jackpot. If no one matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball, then the jackpot will grow even larger on Friday. 

The largest Mega Millions jackpot was worth $656 million and was claimed in 2012.
