No Mega Millions victor, jackpot climbs to $1.6 billion

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot soars to $1 billion

The winning numbers are 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and the mega ball is 7.

The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in US history.

The next drawing will be Tuesday.

The Mega Millions is coordinated by the Multi-State Lottery Association, along with several other lottery games including one called Powerball.

Big money is on the line as the Powerball and Mega Million jackpots continue to grow without a lucky victor in sight.

If someone picks the winning six numbers, they can either claim the jackpot in 30 payments over 30 years - the so-called annuity option - or take a reduced amount in a lump sum.

The new jackpot set another record as the highest Mega Millions prize ever, and got even closer to the highest lottery prize ever, $1.6 billion.

But Messonnier cautioned that it would be "premature" to conclude that this year will be the same as the earlier years. But mysteriously no other country has reported the emerging every-two-years pattern seen in the U.S., Messonnier said.

Based on sales projections, 75 per cent of the 302 million possible combinations will be chosen for the draw, up from 59.1 per cent in Friday's, Carole Gentry, spokeswoman for Maryland Lottery and Gaming, said.

That pot has been growing since July when someone in California won the jackpot.

That is partly by design.

With no winning ticket picked Saturday, the combined total between the Mega Millions and Powerball lotteries has now reached a mind-blowing $2.2 billion.

Leaders of the USA lottery industry, which generates about $80 billion in annual revenue, have experimented with different rules and marketing strategies as they have encountered falling interest among millennials, who are used to the almost-instant gratification of online games and social media. The game is played in 44 states, Puerto Rico, Washington D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Two lottery jackpots continue to grow after no winners were selected in this weekend's drawings.
