Mega Millions jackpot grows to $875M after no grand prize winner

The Mega Millions jackpot has now reached an estimated $875 million after no tickets matched the winning numbers during the Friday night drawing. The winning numbers were 13, 25, 50, 51, and 66 with a Mega Ball of 6 and a 5X Megaplier. One player in New York did match all five white balls to win the game's second-tier prize of $1 million.

The next Mega Millions drawing will be held on Tuesday, with players hoping to win the $875 million grand prize, which has a cash option of $413.5 million. The odds of winning the grand prize are 1 in 302,575,350.

The Mega Millions jackpot was last won on December 8, 2023, when two winners in California matched all six numbers to take home the $395 million prize. The record for the largest jackpot ever won on a single ticket stands at $1.602 billion, which was won in Florida on August 8, 2023.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The deadline for purchasing a ticket is 9:45 p.m. on draw nights. The current $875 million jackpot is the sixth-largest prize ever offered by the game.

As the Mega Millions jackpot continues to grow, more and more players are trying their luck in hopes of hitting the big jackpot. With such high stakes and a large number of players participating, the excitement and anticipation surrounding the next drawing are palpable.
