Mega Millions jackpot grows to $510M ahead of Friday’s drawing

The Mega Millions jackpot currently stands at $510 million ahead of Friday’s drawing.

The cash option is valued at $266.8 million. The drawing will be held on December 23 at 11 p.m. ET.

Lottery officials say the jackpot grew to the second-largest of this year after no winner matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night. However, there were a few $1 million winners in four states: Arizona, Kentucky, Louisiana and Texas.

If a winner is declared from Friday’s drawing, it would be the 11th largest jackpot in the history of the game.

The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302.5 million.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The game is coordinated by state lotteries.
