About 280 million tickets sold in Friday's drawing, none matching the winning mix of 7, 15, 23, 53, 65 and 70 to claim an estimated prize of $1 billion.
No winning tickets were sold for Friday night's massive Mega Millions jackpot, which means the prize has grown to the largest pay-out in US lottery history.
A $1.6 billion prize awaits the person whose ticket matches the six numbers in this Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing.
The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since the last winners - a small office pool in California - were awarded $543 million. The odds of winning the jackpot aren't good.
Tickets cost $2 unless you opt for the "Megaplier", which raises the price to $3.
The Associated Press reports that the jackpot has increased to $1.6 billion after no winning ticket was sold.
This upcoming jackpot just barely surpasses the previous record of $1.5686 billion, which was the grand prize for a Powerball drawing back in 2016.
Jared Lucas told NC lottery officials that he and his wife chose to stop at a convenience store after passing a lottery billboard with the latest Megan Millions jackpot. According to a report by CNN, if a victor is chosen and they take the one-time lump sum pay-out option, they will receive about $905 million all at once.
Mega Millions is played in 44 states Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Some were worth up to $1 million.
The next drawing is at 11 p.m.
Two people in IL purchased winning second-tier tickets in likely attempts to win the then-$1 billion jackpot. You want your name on that ticket.
