Mega Millions jackpot balloons to over $1B

1 billion, marking the fourth time the prize has surpassed $1 billion in just over four years.

The current prize would be the third-largest jackpot in the game's history. The largest prize was $1.537 billion

won in South Carolina on Oct. 23, 2018 followed by a $1.337 billion prize won in Illinois on July 29, according to Mega Millions.

The winning numbers for Friday’s jackpot were 3, 20, 46, 59, 63 and the Gold Mega Ball number was 13.

There have been 24 consecutive drawings since Oct. 14 but no grand prize winner has been declared which has ramped up the jackpot.

The next drawing will be held on Tuesday.

The estimated $785 million prize is for a winner who chooses to be paid through an annuity, with annual checks over 29 years
