More than half a billion dollars will be available on Friday after no more chance of winning the growing Mega Millions jackpot.
The numbers drawn on Tuesday evening were 7, 25, 43, 56 and 59 and the mega ball was 13. But no ticket matched all six numbers for the $ 458 million jackpot, which is the estimated price of the next drawing at $ 502 Million raised, according to lottery officials.
It's the fourth time in the history of the game that the jackpot has exceeded half a billion dollars.
"Jackpot roles are always exciting, but crossing the $ 500 million mark for the fourth time is a historic milestone," said Gordon Medenica, director of Mega Millions, Wednesday morning in a news release. "Big jackpots like this attract everyone's attention, and it would be great if the litter continues for a while, but we can not wait for anyone to win."
The next Mega Millions drawing will be on Friday at 20:59 ET. The cash settlement option for the $ 502 million jackpot is $ 301 million.
Mega Millions operates in 44 US states and in Washington, D.C. and the US Virgin Islands.
