COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — Up to $1.35 billion was on the line Friday night in the Mega Millions drawing. Now, a record jackpot will be on the line on Tuesday.

The winning numbers for Friday’s drawing were 11, 30, 45, 52, 56, and the gold Mega Ball was 20. The Megaplier was 2X. No tickets matched the grand prize win which means the pot has increased to $1.55 billion, a new all-time Mega Millions record and the largest jackpot since 2018.

The largest Mega Millions jackpots are:

  1. $1.55 billion (estimated), August 8, 2023
  2. $1.537 billion, Oct. 23, 2018
  3. $1.348 billion, Jan. 13, 2023
  4. $1.337 billion, July 29, 2022
  5. $1.050 billion, Jan. 22, 2021
  6. $656 million, March 30, 2012
  7. $648 million, Dec. 17, 2013
  8. $543 million, July 24, 2018
  9. $536 million, July 18, 2016
  10. $533 million, March 30, 2018

The drawing on Friday came after no winners claimed Tuesday’s $1.1 billion jackpot. With no winners crowned in Friday’s drawing, next Tuesday’s drawing will be the fourth time this year a jackpot over $1 billion is up for grabs.

Friday’s drawing was the sixth time in the game’s history that the jackpot exceeded the billion-dollar mark and the second-largest sum.

The last time someone claimed the Mega Millions jackpot was won was April 18, making Friday’s drawing the 31st try at a winning ticket. Since then, there have been more than 26.4 million tickets winning non-jackpot prizes.

In order to collect the full jackpot, the winner must agree to be paid over a 29-year span. Most winners usually opt for a one-time cash payment, estimated at $757.2 million for Tuesday’s jackpot.

It was just a little over a year ago that the game’s then-third-largest jackpot — $1.337 billion on July 29, 2022 – was matched by one ticket in Illinois.

According to the Mega Millions lottery, none of the top 10 jackpots in the game’s history has been won by an Ohioan.

No Ohioans were among the seven winners of Tuesday’s Match 5 prize, worth $1 million. One person from Texas won the $4 million Match 5 and Megaplier award.

More than 3.1 million people won the smallest prize in Tuesday’s drawing — $2.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tickets cost $2 each with the optional Megaplier available for an additional $1.
