Though no one won the grand prize outright on Friday, Mega Millions officials said there were 15 tickets sold with numbers that matched all five white balls but not the Mega Ball.
You're not imagining things: It has always been extremely unlikely to win a Mega Millions jackpot, but it is even more improbable than ever to win the top prize these days.
Should Tuesday produce a victor, it will be the largest prize in U.S. history - and the sum is likely to grow even larger before the draw as excitement around the record-breaking cash prize tempts more people to play. Most states also tax lottery winnings.
Tickets can be purchased now for the drawing.
In 2016, a $1.58 billion Powerball prize was split three ways by ticket holders from California, Florida and Tennessee.
USA lottery winnings are taxable at the federal level, unlike in many other countries, while some states also impose local taxes.
Good news! There's another chance to become America's newest billionaire.
The game, which was created in 2002, has seen changes over the years that have reduced the chances of winning, meaning bigger and bigger jackpots.
Still, many secondary prizes need to be claimed, some ranging as high as a million dollars.
The winning numbers drawn Friday were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 with a mega ball number of 7.
The next Powerball drawing is at 11 p.m. EST Saturday.
Your chance of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is one in 302 million.
The jackpot has been rolling every drawing since July 27, when it started at $40 million.
And a year ago, to go along with the longer odds to win, Mega Millions doubled the price of a single ticket from $1 to $2, so you're paying more to more likely lose, according to CNN Money.
