Friday night’s Mega Millions drawing will be more than a half-billion dollars after nobody picked the game’s winning numbers Tuesday.
The winning numbers for the estimated $475 million jackpot were 3-5-56-61-66 and the Mega Ball was 4. The Megaplier was 2x.
There were five people who won at least $1 million. Two in California, one in Delaware and one in Ohio picked the five white numbers correctly. Another in Virginia added the Megaplier to win $2 million.
But nobody picked all six. The estimated jackpot will increase to $515 million Friday night. The cash option, should someone win, is $346.3 million.
The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1-in-302 million.
A group of lottery players in Michigan won a $1.05 billion jackpot on Jan. 22.
The game is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
