The jackpot for this Friday's Mega Millions lottery drawing is now more than a half-billion dollars. No one matched all six winning numbers in Tuesday night's drawing.
The jackpot is now an estimated $502 million dollars, the fourth-largest in the multi-state game's history. It is expected to grow before the drawing on Friday. If the winner chooses the lump-sum payout option, he or she would receive $301 million, before taxes.
