No victor in Mega Millions Friday drawing, jackpot up to $1.6 billion

Mega Millions

No one hit the jackpot in the Mega Millions on Friday night, meaning the grand prize is expected to climb to a cool $1.6 billion for Tuesday's drawing.

Tuesday night's Mega Millions estimated grand prize has hit a staggering $1.6 billion, continuing a trend of giant jackpots.

"We passed the jackpot sign and saw the '6-5-4, ' " Lucas told lottery officials after claiming his prize at lottery headquarters in Raleigh Tuesday, according to an NC Education Lottery news release.

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 USA lottery history.

The odds of winning on Friday were one in 302.5 million.

If more than one victor is picked, the jackpot would be divided proportionately, as happened when the previous Mega Millions record of $656 million was drawn in March 2012 and was shared by winners in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland, a lottery official said.

For Mega Millions, the lump sum cash option is $904 million.

At least 15 winning tickets were sold on Friday, though where and to whom has not been announced yet.

The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

The jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million. Since Tuesday, about $400 million has been added to the pot.

The next drawing is at 11 p.m. Some were worth up to $1 million.
