DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – After nearly three months of lottery losing, will someone finally break the trend and win a $1.1 billion Mega Millions jackpot?

Regardless of how long it takes, the odds of winning the top lottery prize don’t change, and they’re formidable at 1 in 302.6 million.

But someone will eventually match all six numbers and win the jackpot, which now ranks as the fifth-largest in U.S. history.

The drawing is set for 10 p.m. Tuesday.

The $1.1 billion prize is for a winner who chooses to be paid through an annuity over 29 years.

Winners usually prefer cash, which would be an estimated $568.7 million.
