Staten Island, NY — The Mega Millions jackpot continues to skyrocket after no winners in the Friday night draw.

And that’s the story of the country. Expectations are rising as the number of jackpots continues to grow. The estimated winnings for the next draw on Tuesday reached $ 790 million, or $ 464.4 million in cash.

After no tickets matched all six numbers drawn on Friday night, the jackpot rolled again: white balls 14, 40, 60, 64, 66, and gold mega balls 16.

In each game, only three lottery jackpots have been won so far, exceeding the estimated jackpot prize of $ 790 million.

The jackpot is very expensive as there have been no winners for months. The last jackpot winner was in April.

Two were Mega Millions jackpots. It will cost 1,537 million won in South Carolina on October 23, 2018 and 1,050 million won in Michigan on January 22, 2021. The current world record lottery award won the $ 1,586 million Powerball Jackpot on January 13. 2016.

However, while no one has won the prize jackpot, there were still millions of winners in the Friday night draw, including a total of 3.4 million winning tickets at all prize levels.

Four tickets matched five white balls to win the second prize in the game. Three of them were worth $ 3 million each, as they included an optional megaplier ($ 1 extra purchase available in most states), which is three times the Friday night. They were sold in Delaware, New Jersey and New York. The remaining Match 5 winning tickets were worth $ 1 million and were sold in Virginia.
