The Mega Millions jackpot for Tuesday night's drawing hit an estimated $636 million, the second largest ever. Everybody is anxious to check their numbers and see if they just hit it big. The Dec. 17 numbers were tweeted by CNN as soon as they were drawn.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot winning numbers are: 8, 20, 14, 17, 39 and 7. It will take a bit of time to see if there were any winning tickets, and if there were, where they were sold. There hasn't been a winner of the full jackpot since the Mega Millions lottery added numbers to the mix in October and made it that much harder to win.

Experts have estimated that the Mega Millions jackpot could reach $1 billion by Christmas if nobody wins Tuesday or over the next couple of drawings. Just how big will it get? It's escalating quickly with each drawing with so many anxious to take their shot at the big win. Winning the massive Mega Millions jackpot could certainly bring someone a very Merry Christmas.
