Tickets in Texas and Washington were Match 5 winners for a $1 million take, but no one hit the final Mega Ball number.

The final Mega Millions grand prize could wind up even higher, depending on sales.

According to the Mega Millions website, the $353 million prize would rank fifth on the list of top 10 Mega Millions jackpots.

The winning numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing were 9-14-56-57-69 and Mega Ball number 10.
