Mega Millions Numbers To Be Revealed Tonight, March 30 (INFO)

Posted: Updated:

Tonight's the night. The latest Mega Millions numbers will be picked in a drawing at 11 p.m. ET.

The $640 million jackpot is the world's largest ever, and excitement is spreading throughout the nation. Even a gorilla got in on the action.

Some are already fantasizing about what they'd do if they win, and the odds are pretty high that for at least one person fantasy will become a reality. A Mega Millions spokesperson told the Los Angeles Times there is a 95% chance someone will win the jackpot tonight based on all the combinations sold.

According to the official Mega Millions website, here's how the drawing works:

Mega Millions drawings are held Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m. Five balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 56; one ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 46. You win if the numbers on one row of your ticket match the numbers of the balls drawn on that date. There are nine ways to win a prize, from $2 to the jackpot. If no one wins the jackpot, the money is added to the jackpot for the next drawing. Overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 40.

There's also more at stake than just the jackpot. You can find how much you'd win if you match only some of the numbers here.

To see the winning numbers revealed live, you should seek out your local television affiliate broadcasting the drawing. Check the Mega Millions website and pick your state under "Where To Play" to learn which local affiliate to watch.

Not going to be around at 11 p.m.?

One way to find the winning numbers later is to check the Mega Millions website, which will post them here. But there's a chance the site will be overloaded with traffic and go down.

You can also try searching Twitter for the winning numbers, but make sure you look for reputable sources like lottery accounts or news organizations.

Or you can come back here, as HuffPost will update this article and post the winning numbers as soon as they are available.
