Benzinga – The Mega Millions jackpot has reached an astounding sum of over $1 billion, as no winning ticket matched all six numbers drawn on Friday night.
The numbers drawn on Friday night were 5, 10, 28, 52, 63, and the Mega Ball was 18, the lottery said in a statement.
Since the last jackpot was won on April 18, there have been 29 consecutive draws without a winner. The estimated jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday night is $1.05 billion, making it the fourth-largest prize in Mega Millions’ history.
The Mega Millions jackpot winner can receive the money either in installments, with one immediate payment and 29 annual payments, or as a lump sum of $527.9 million.
The Mega Millions draw offers nine ways to win a prize, ranging from $2 to the jackpot amount.
