For the fourth time in a little more than four years, the Mega Millions® jackpot has topped $1 billion!

After no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Friday night – the white balls 3, 20, 46, 59, and 63, plus the gold Mega Ball 13 – the jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday, January 10, is currently estimated at $1.1 billion ($568.7 million cash).

If won at that amount, it would be the third-largest jackpot in the game’s history.

“Mega Millions has just reached the $1 billion mark again. It’s especially nice to see the jackpot grow throughout the holidays and into the new year,” says Ohio Lottery Director Pat McDonald, Lead Director of the Mega Millions Consortium. “We are thankful for the support of our customers and retailers, which allows each of our 47 member lotteries to generate funds for good causes within their jurisdiction. As the jackpot grows, we encourage our players to keep within their entertainment budget and enjoy this jackpot run right along with us.”

Across the country, 115 tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball to win the third-tier prize. Fifteen of those tickets are worth $30,000 each, because they included the optional Megaplier (available in most states with an extra $1 purchase), which was 3X on Friday night. The other 100 third-tier winning tickets are worth $10,000 each.

While there was no jackpot winner, one lucky Florida player won a cool $1,000.000 on Friday’s draw. According to the Florida Lottery, a winning $1 million ticket that matched five of the winning numbers was sold at the RaceTrac at 16640 US Highway 19 North in Hudson, Pasco County.
