Mega Millions winning numbers for March 5 drawing

The Mega Millions jackpot has reached $650 million for Tuesday night's drawing after no one won the big prize on Friday night.

The winning numbers were drawn around 11 p.m. EST Tuesday night and we have the results

The winning numbers for Tuesday, March 5 were 2, 49, 50, 61 and 70, with a Mega Ball of 14. The Megaplier was 2X.

There were no grand prize winners in Tuesday night's drawing. Two tickets − one in California and one in Michigan − won the Match 5 prize of $1 million.

In order to purchase a ticket, you'll have to visit your local convenience store, gas station or grocery store - and in a handful of states, you can purchase tickets online.

To play, you will need to pick six numbers in total. Five numbers will be white balls ranging from numbers 1 to 70. The gold Mega Ball is one number which is between 1 and 25.

If you believe the odds are against you, ask for a "Quick Pick" or an "Easy Pick," the computer will randomly generate the numbers for you.

Players can add the "Megaplier" for $1 which can increase non-grand prize winnings by two, three, four or five. The Megapiler is drawn before the Mega Millions numbers on Tuesday and Friday.
