Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -  The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has rolled again and will be worth at least $750-million for the next drawing.

No ticket matched all the numbers selected in Tuesday's night drawing and the current $750-millon grand prize is the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history. It will be up for grabs Friday.

The current record Mega Millions jackpot is $1.537 billion won in South Carolina on October 23, 2018; it remains the world’s largest lotto prize awarded on a single ticket.

The top Mega Millions jackpots to date:

  • $1.537 billion 10/23/2018 1-SC
  • $750 million (est) 1/15/2021 ?
  • $656 million 3/30/2012 3-IL, KS, MD
  • $648 million 12/17/2013 2-CA, GA

  • $451 million 1/5/2018 1-FL
  • $437 million 1/1/2019 1-NY

As the excitement builds, Friday’s jackpot will likely vie for the honor of being the third-largest lotto prize in American history, as two Powerball jackpots have been won in the same range – $768.4 million and $758.7 million.

Powerball holds the world record for the largest lotto jackpot at $1.586 billion, shared by three winning tickets almost exactly five years ago.

The Powerball game also has a mega jackpot that is on the line Wednesday night.  As of 4 am Wednesday, it was worth $550-million.
