Mega Millions jackpot nears $1 billion making it the third largest lotto prize to date; drawing Friday night

Mega Millions players are hoping to break the game’s longest losing streak on Friday.

The jackpot on Jan. 22 is at $970 million, the second-largest prize in the game’s history, after there hasn’t been a winner in months.

“It’s the longest the game has gone without a jackpot win,” Mega Millions said.

The last time someone won was when a Wisconsin player won a $120 million prize on Sept. 15, the website states.

Of course there have been numerous smaller winners over the last few months.

“There were a total of 5,193,801 winning tickets at all prize levels in Tuesday night’s drawing, including 11 that matched the five white balls to win the game’s second prize of at least $1 million,” the website states.

The most someone has won from Mega Million was on Oct. 23, 2018 when a South Carolina winner won $1.537 billion.
