No Powerball Winner Sends Jackpot To $620 Million

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot soars to $1 billion No Mega Millions winner, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion
| 22 October, 2018, 05:27

Carole Bober Gentry, a spokeswoman for the participating Maryland Lottery, said so many Mega Millions tickets have been sold that 75 percent of the projected winning number combinations will have been chosen by the time of drawing - making it more likely that someone will walk away with the jackpot.

The Mega Millions' odds were lowered a year ago to 1-in-303 million from 1-in-259 million, to generate larger prizes.

The next Powerball drawing is at 11 p.m. EST Wednesday.

The jackpot has been rolling every drawing since July 27, when it started at $40 million.

It costs $2 to play the game, but the odds of winning the jackpot aren't good.

From July 27 through October 16, Mega Millions sales in North Carolina raised an estimated $10.6 million for education, the lottery site said. The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.


The lucky player matched all five white numbers drawn but was just one number shy of the jackpot.

For an additional $1 you can get a "Megaplier" ticket that will increase the amount of the smaller prizes, but not the grand prize.

As more tickets sell before the draw on Tuesday, chances grow that at least one buyer will pick all six winning numbers.

The numbers have been drawn for Saturday's estimated $470 million Powerball jackpot.

Last year, lottery officials raised the price of Mega Millions tickets from one to two dollars and that has in turn meant larger prizes.
