The Mega Millions jackpot ranks as the seventh largest in the game's history.

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 44 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Police notified Child Protective Services who took custody of the young boy until he can be returned to family members. It is not clear if she visited the father's home first and found it empty, or if she was mistaken as to his address.

In addition to the jackpot prize, players can win lower-tier prizes ranging from $2 to $5 million by matching any of the non-jackpot-winning combinations.

Now, Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing will be worth $470 million up by $50 million.

The odds of winning both jackpots are 1 in 75 quadrillion - that's 15 zeros - according to data scientists at Allstate.

Winning numbers can be found at retailers statewide, on the Lottery's website and by phone at 850-921-PLAY.
