Buying a lotto ticket? Check out these tips before you play Mega Millions.

An estimated $522 million are on the line for Tuesday night's Mega Millions jackpot drawing.

The numbers were 1, 2, 4,19, 29, and Mega Ball 20. The Megaplier was 3.

One ticket in San Jose, California, matched all the numbers for the more than half a billion dollars.



The Mega Millions jackpot swelled to over half a billion dollars ahead of the drawing, and the odds were against us.

One report says there's a one in 302 million chance of winning the $522 million jackpot. But there are things you can do to boost the odds of becoming a multi-millionaire.

Looking at all the past Megaball numbers from this year alone, there are three numbers that have been equally picked the most: 14, 22 and 23.

For the other combinations, experts say you have a better chance of winning if you choose your own numbers over the quick pick. The quick pick numbers are computer generated and tend to be repeated.

What can you do with $522 million? You can buy your own jet, an island in the Bahamas, or even a baseball team.

Your newfound riches could also buy you 10 days on the International Space Station.

The jackpot has a cash option of $308 million, which is obviously still not a bad chunk of change.
