Mega Millions jackpot tops $1 billion after no one won $830 million grand prize – CBS News

The Mega Millions jackpot has crossed the $1 billion threshold. The grand prize in Friday night’s drawing will be an estimated $1.02 billion, lottery officials said, though that’s certain to grow as more and more tickets are bought as that drawing approaches.

The cash option for that pot of gold would be $602.5 million.

No winning tickets were sold for Tuesday night’s drawing, which had a jackpot of $830 million. It would have been the nation’s fourth-largest lottery prize of all time and third-largest Mega Millions prize.

$1.02 billion, to be exact. That’s almost sure to grow before Friday night’s drawing. There have now been 29 straight drawings without a winner.
