According to the lottery, a record Mega Millions jackpot may be in play after no ticket matched all winning numbers in Friday night's drawing.
The estimated $1.55 billion grand prize - about $757.2 million if the lump sum payment option is selected - could be the highest jackpot in Mega Millions history during the next drawing on Tuesday night at 11 p.m. ET.
However, we won't know for sure until the drawing on Tuesday; at this level, jackpots are difficult to predict with total precision." Mega Millions announced the news in an early Saturday press release.
The winning numbers for Friday were 11-30-45-52-56, with a Mega Ball of 20.
And, while no one matched them all, some players did strike it rich on Friday.
According to Mega Millions, seven tickets sold in Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas each won $1 million after matching the first five numbers.
According to the lottery, two tickets sold in Michigan and Tennessee won $2 million each by matching the first five numbers and activating the Megaplier, which is available in most states for an additional $1 purchase.
