Mega Millions past winning numbers and the Mega Millions jackpot!
Did you know that 13% of the winning tickets had the odd/even ratio of 3 odd 3 even? The most balanced combination of them all. The following combination was 4 even/2 odd with 8% of all draws and the 2 even/4 odd with close to 7%.  There were also the 6 odd/0 even and 0 odd/6 even combinations drawn during the past 11 years, but they barely account for 1% of all draws. Be careful when choosing your numbers, try to keep a more balanced odd/even ratio because it’s best to listen to history when you have the facts.

Iowa Lottery › Games › Mega Millions
Mega Millions, the game that holds the record for the largest jackpot in North America, began on August 31, 1996, as the Big Game. In May 2002, the multi-state game was given the new name of "Mega Millions." On January 31, 2010, 23 more state lotteries, including the Iowa Lottery, began selling Mega Millions tickets as a historic cross-selling agreement between Mega Millions and Powerball went into effect. The largest Mega Millions jackpot won so far was a $656 million prize split by players in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland in March 2012.
