After no ticket matched all six winning numbers in Tuesday night’s drawing, the Mega Millions lottery drawing had a prize pool of $1.02 billion as of Tuesday.
According to the Mega Millions website, if a winning ticket is found, the jackpot will be the third largest in the game’s 20-year history. Check out the top new sportsbooks for betting on sports.
“All jurisdictions have reported in, and no one has hit the Mega Millions jackpot. So, the jackpot will roll to $1,025,000,000 for Friday ($602.5 million cash),” lottery spokesperson Marie Kilbane told CNN.
The six numbers drawn were 7, 29, 60, 63, and 66, as well as the gold Mega Ball 15. Despite the fact that no one hit the jackpot on Tuesday, several winners received large payouts. After matching the first five numbers, eight tickets won $1 million each.
Several winning Mega Millions tickets worth at least $1 million have been purchased in Massachusetts over the years, according to the Massachusetts Lottery, including one ticket worth $294 million.
According to the lottery, the largest Mega Millions jackpot was $1.537 billion on October 23, 2018, for a ticket sold in South Carolina. On January 22, 2021, a group of four players in Michigan won a $1.05 billion jackpot.
The next drawing will take place on Friday at 9 p.m. local time. A single Mega Millions ticket costs $2.

The drawing on Friday night will be the thirty-first in the jackpot run, which began on April 19 after the jackpot was won in Tennessee on April 15.
