The Mega Millions jackpot has increased to more than $1 billion for Tuesday night’s drawing.
The Mega Millions jackpot has risen to more than $1 billion after no winning coupon matched all six numbers drawn Friday night, the lottery said.
Friday night’s numbers were 5, 10, 28, 52, 63 and a Mega Ball on 18.
Although no one hit the jackpot on Friday, some people scored big prizes.
A ticket sold in Pennsylvania won $5 million by matching the first five numbers and activating the optional Megaplier, which is available in most states with an additional $1 purchase.
Four other tickets won $1 million by matching the first five numbers without the Megaplier. These tickets were sold in Arizona, California, New York and Pennsylvania.
The best Mega Millions jackpot to date was 1.537 billion dollars won in South Carolina in 2018. It is followed by a $1.348 billion ticket that was sold in Maine in January and a $1.337 billion premium July last year.
Last week, a Powerball ticket sold at a Los Angeles convenience store matched all the numbers win a prize of $1.08 billion – the third largest Powerball jackpot.
