DES MOINES - Winning numbers in Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing are: 8, 14, 17, 20, 39; Mega Ball: 7.

Matching all the numbers means winning a $636 million jackpot.  Tuesday night's drawing was for the second-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. History.

Media outlets in California reported late Tuesday night, at least one ticket matched the numbers.  It was purchased at a store in San Jose.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing for weeks because of a game revamp that dramatically lowered the odds of winning the top prize to about 1 in 259 million. It used to be about 1 in 176 million, nearly the same odds of winning a Powerball jackpot.
