It will be the largest jackpot in the game's history and the second largest in the USA lottery jackpot history.

Officials raised the estimated jackpot Thursday for the second time because of strong sales ahead of Friday night's drawing for what would be the second-largest lottery jackpot in USA history.

The numbers are 3, 57, 64, 68, 69 and the Powerball is 15.

Mega Millions Jackpot Surges To New Record $868 Million
A handful of million-dollar tickets were sold, including one in NY , one in New Jersey and two in Pennsylvania. Now, there's more than a billion dollars up for grabs between the Mega Millions and the Power Ball drawing.

Its jackpot has ballooned to $900 million for Friday's drawing - the second largest in USA lottery history and the biggest in the game's history- after yielding no winners since the end of July.

Ascienzo also says while lottery jackpots are overwhelming played by low-income Americans, ticket sales tend to hit a tipping point because higher-income Americans are drawn to the higher jackpots as well.

The next Mega Millions drawing is at 11 p.m. EST Friday.

Zach Davies replaces Gio Gonzalez on the Brewers roster
The Dodgers had runners at the corners in the eighth against hard-throwing Josh Hader, who pitched for the second consecutive day. Gonzalez gave up one run on two hits in one-plus inning, injuring himself while trying to field a Yasiel Puig infield single.

If the victor chooses the annuity option, the jackpot would be paid out over 29 years.

The largest lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016. When the jackpots flirt with the half-billion-dollar mark, state lotteries don't even feel the need to advertise, he said.

Officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the Mega Millions prize Tuesday night. The last Powerball jackpot, which totaled $245.6 million, was won August 11 by a man in Staten Island, New York. The jackpot has been rolling every drawing since July 27, when it started at $40 million.
