The Winning Mega Millions lottery numbers

It's the night many of you have been waiting for.

Here are the winning Mega Million lottery numbers:

46-23-38-4-2-(MB) 23

The jackpot for tonight's drawing is 640 Million dollars.  It is the highest lottery Jackpot ever.

Lottery ticket lines swelled as Americans wagered nearly $1.5 billion on the longest of long shots: a less than 1 percent chance to join the 1 percent Friday night as the winner of a record $640 million Mega Millions jackpot.

A cafe worker in Arizona reported selling $2,600 worth of tickets to one buyer, while a retired soldier in Wisconsin doubled his regular weekly ticket spending to $55. But each would have to put down millions more to guarantee winning what could be the biggest single lotto payout in the world.

The jackpot, if taken as a $462 million lump sum and after federal tax withholding, works out to about $347 million.

With the jackpot odds at 1 in 176 million, it would cost $176 million to buy up every combination. Under that scenario, the strategy would win $171 million - less if your state also withholds taxes.
