No winner for Mega Millions as jackpot for next drawing now over $1.1 billion

The $977 million Mega Millions jackpot had winning numbers selected on Friday, but no winner was announced. As a result, the projected jackpot for Tuesday's drawing is now over $1.1 billion.

The winning numbers on Friday night were gold Mega Ball 16 and 3, 8, 31, 35, and 44.

Thirty drawings in a row have gone without a jackpot winner. On December 8, the last jackpot was won.

With no winner announced on Friday, it is anticipated that the jackpot reward, which had a monetary value of $467 million, will increase dramatically. The jackpot prize can be awarded as an instant payment followed by 29 annual payments, or as a one-time lump sum payment.

Mega Millions states that there is a 1 in 302,575,350 chance of winning the jackpot.

In addition to Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands, forty-five states play Mega Millions. One show costs two tickets.
