It's now up to $530 million, the seventh largest jackpot in the game's history and it's only expected to rise.
The Mega Millions jackpot is up to $530 million for Friday night's drawing.
This is the seventh largest jackpot in Mega Millions history, and the game's largest since October when a ticket sold in SC won a record-setting $1.537 billion. It's also the first Mega Millions jackpot of the year to jump above the half-billion dollar mark.
The numbers were 17, 19, 27, 40 and 68.
The Mega Millions jackpot hasn't been hit since March 12, when Hira Singh of Shawnee, Kansas, won the $50 million top prize with a ticket he bought at a QuikTrip in Kansas City, Missouri.More news: Mexico agrees to accept more USA asylum seekers

That means the jackpot on Tuesday, June 11 will be worth $40 million with a cash option of $26 million.
In New Jersey, three $10,000 third-prize tickets were sold.
Winners must match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball to take home the big prize. That jackpot came in at $1.5 billion.
There were two other tickets sold with five numbers, but missing the Mega number.
