(UNDATED) - According to the Mega Millions lottery website, the jackpot has reached $500 million on Wednesday.

The Mega Millions jackpot continues to grow by millions of dollars, making it the largest total in U.S. history.

Tuesday's lottery drawing failed to produce a winner for a $363 million prize. Now, according to the Mega Millions lottery website, the jackpot has reached $500 million on Wednesday.

The winning numbers Tuesday night were: 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51. The Mega Ball was 24.

Lottery officials said the jackpot has been increasing since Jan. 24, when an Atlanta woman won a $72 million jackpot.

The winner of the latest jackpot could choose to receive $19.2 million a year for 26 years or a single payment of $359 million.

Officials say the odds of winning the jackpot are approximately one in 176 million.

The next drawing is on Friday at 11 p.m.
