“All jurisdictions have reported, and no one has won the Mega Millions jackpot. So the jackpot will go to $1,025 million by Friday ($602.5 million cash),” lottery spokesperson Marie Kilbane told CNN in an email.

Tuesday night’s winning numbers were 7, 29, 60, 63, 66 and the Mega Ball 15. The next draw is Friday at 11pm ET.

While no one hit the jackpot on Tuesday, some of the winners claimed big prizes. There were eight tickets that won $1 million each after matching the first five numbers.

And the prize for another winning ticket sold in Ohio that matched the first five numbers was $3 million because it featured an optional Megaplier purchased for an additional $1.

If there is a winning ticket on Friday, the $1.02 billion jackpot will be the third largest Mega Millions jackpot prize in the game’s 20-year history, according to the Mega Millions website.

Mega Millions’ largest jackpot was $1,537 billion on Oct. 23, 2018, for a ticket sold in South Carolina, according to the lottery. On January 22, 2021, a group of four players in Michigan won a $1.05 billion jackpot.

Over 24 hours, traffic to the Mega Millions website reached 62 million requests, Kilbane said. There was so much traffic to the Mega Millions website on Tuesday night that shortly after the 11 p.m. draw, the website was down for a while, although it seemed to improve as traffic slowed.

This year four Mega Millions jackpots have been won in Tennessee, California, New York and Minnesota.
