Mega Millions jackpot keeps growing

By  | 

The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to $540 million for Friday's drawing because tickets are selling at about twice the rate of a week ago.
Mega Millions lead lottery director Paula Otto says sales are expected to exceed $181 million between Tuesday's drawing and Friday. An estimated $1 billion in tickets have been sold since the last winning ticket was drawn in early March.
This is the longest Mega Millions run without a winner. Friday's drawing will be the 35th since the March winner.
Friday's jackpot is the game's third highest behind jackpots of $656 million in March 2012 and $648 million in December 2013. It's the seventh highest U.S. lottery jackpot.
Tickets are sold in 43 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
