The winning numbers for Tuesday nights drawing of Mega Millions are: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39, and the Mega Ball number is 7.

The jackpot is estimated to climb to $1 billion for Friday's drawing if there is no winner in Tuesday night's drawing.

Mega Millions is played in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
