Finished checking your tickets now? No one matched all five numbers plus the Mega Ball, so Friday night's drawing will be worth an estimated $500 million. The value of the cash option for Friday's drawing is $359 million. Both prize amounts are records for lottery jackpots in the United States.
Tuesday night's drawing was bumped to $363 million, from the original $356 million, due to stronger than expected sales, according to a news release.
Although there were no jackpot winners, 47 people won the $250,000 second prize by matching five numbers without the Mega Ball, including two in Maryland.
There hasn't been a Mega Millions winner since Jan. 24, when a Georgia woman won the jackpot. The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately one in 176 million.
