No winner of Mega Millions $750M; Powerball drawing Saturday
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - One of the biggest jackpots in US history is getting bigger as there was no winner on Friday for the $ 750 million Mega Millions grand prize drawing.
The numbers were 3, 11, 12, 38, 43 with a Mega Ball of 15 and would have marked the fifth largest jackpot ever drawn.
Mega Millions estimated that its next grand prize would be $ 850 million, which would be the third largest ever. The drawing is on Tuesday.
Lottery players still have a chance to win big in Saturday's drawing for a Powerball grand prize of $ 640 million, the eighth largest jackpot. The odds of winning are one in 292.2 million.
It's been almost two years since a lottery jackpot got this big. Nobody has won the top prize in either game for months.
The jackpot amounts listed refer to winners who choose a pension that is paid over 30 years. The winners almost always choose cash prizes, which for Powerball would be $ 478.7 million. The estimated cash prize for the next Mega Millions jackpot is $ 628.2 million.
Mega Millions and Powerball are both played in 45 states, as well as Washington, DC and the US Virgin Islands. Powerball is also offered in Puerto Rico.
