If you want a shot at more than a half billion dollars, you might want to grab a Mega Millions ticket! The jackpot has been rolling over since the last winning numbers matched on January 5.

A $1,500 winning ticket also was sold in LaPlace, according to the report. The numbers drawn were 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59, plus the gold Mega Ball 13.

Each ticket matched the first five numbers without the Mega Ball. Winners have not come forward to claim the Atlanta and Braselton prizes yet.

The $502 million prize is the fourth largest in the lottery's 16 year history. The Mega Millions jackpot has now passed the $500 million mark. The record was set in 2012 at $656 million - and one of the three winning tickets for that one was sold right here in Kansas.
