Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots worth over $860 million

Mega Millions, Powerball jackpots worth over $860 million

The next drawing at 11 p.m. EDT Friday will offer the ninth-largest jackpot in USA history.

Numbers will be drawn Friday night for a chance at the estimated $548 million Mega Millions prize.

The jackpot for Mega Millions has jumped to $654 million, with a cash option of $372.6 million, after no one won in Friday night's drawing.

Mega Millions officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the estimated $548 million grand prize.

Since 2000, the store has sold three multi-million-dollar jackpot tickets, the owners said, as well as dozens more winners of $1,000 or more. The current Powerball jackpot has ballooned to $314 million. Friday's jackpot is likely to beat the third-highest total of $540 million from July 2016, depending on ticket sales.

Other jackpots won this year include $451 million in January, $533 million in March, and $142 million in May.
