Mega Millions jackpot grows again as no one wins

LUCKY TICKET? Kenny Mcardle of Dorchester shows off the Mega Millions tickets he purchased at the 7 Eleven for today’s drawing. Staff

The U.S. Mega Millions lottery, after an 11-week spell without a victor, has amassed its third-largest jackpot ever, $548 million, which will be up for grabs in Friday night's drawing. Lottery officials will likely announce sometime Saturday if there was a winning ticket.

In 2012, three winning tickets were sold, so the jackpot was split three ways in Kansas, Illinois, and Maryland.

Friday's drawing was the 23rd time no one matched all six numbers.

For example, matching five white balls without the Mega Ball pays $1 million. The largest single-ticket victor in Mega Millions history was on July 24, 2018, when one person from California won the $543 million drawing.

That will be the 4th largest jackpot in U.S. History.

Mega Millions is heading into "mega" territory.

The Powerball jackpot climbed after no one matched all six numbers Wednesday night, but three lucky winners matched the first five numbers for a cool $1 million. The odds of hitting the Powerball jackpot are 292,201,388 to 1.

Rather than go through a sometimes-complicated setup process, just screw in the light bulb and load up your Google Assistant app. Another thing we're expecting on the original Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is Gmail's new Smart Compose tools.

NY has sold the most Mega Millions jackpot winnings in game history, with 35 wins in the last 16 years.

Your chance of winning the Mega Millions is slim.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of instant wealth aren't good.

Four tickets matched all five white balls to earn the second prize, and 37 matched four white balls and the Mega Ball for a third-place prize.

If you're looking for a tiny hint: the numbers 17 and 12 have been drawn twice as Mega Balls since August 31.

If you match 4 white only, you'll win $500. The most recent Mega Ball was 18 on Tuesday night.
