DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Lottery players are getting another shot at the third-largest jackpot in U.S. history.

The Mega Millions top prize has hit an estimated $970 million without a winner Tuesday.

The drawing was the biggest in more than two years. The winning numbers are: 10-19-26-28-50 and a Mega Ball of 16.

Powerball, the other lottery game offered in most of the U.S., isn’t far behind at $730 million for a drawing Wednesday night.

It’s the first time both lottery jackpots have topped $700 million.

No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot since Sept. 15.

The last Powerball jackpot winner was a day later, on Sept. 16.
