Tuesday night’s Mega Millions jackpot rose to $830 million — but no one won it.  The jackpot has now reached $1.02 billion, and it is likely to rise before Friday’s drawing. As of April 15, no one has matched the game’s six selected numbers.  Lottery spokesperson Marie Kilbane told CNN, “All jurisdictions have reported in, and no one has hit the Mega Millions jackpot. So, the jackpot will roll to $1,025,000,000 for Friday ($602.5 million cash).” Mega Millions website reports the $1.02 billion jackpot would be the third largest in the game’s 20-year history if a winning ticket is found Friday.

On Tuesday night, if a player would have won the jackpot, it would have been the fourth-largest Mega Millions jackpot in history. $487.9 million would have been the cash option for Tuesday’ night jackpot.

According to the lottery, the largest Mega Millions jackpot was $1.537 billion on October 23, 2018. On January 22, 2021, four players in Michigan won a $1.05 billion jackpot. Kilbane said that 62 million requests were made to the Mega Millions website over the past 24 hours. On Tuesday night, the Mega Millions website experienced so much traffic that shortly after the 11 p.m. drawing the webpage went down for a while. However, as traffic dwindled it appeared to resume progress.

Tennessee, California, New York and Minnesota have all won Mega Millions jackpots this year, who will be the first to win in Michigan? It could be you.
