Mega Millions Prize Reaches $1.35 Billion: Second-Highest Jackpot in Game's History

The Mega Millions prize has grown to an estimated $1.35 billion after no winner was announced.

The numbers drawn on Tuesday night were 7, 13, 14, 15, 18, and the gold Mega Ball 9.

The new jackpot drawing on Friday night is a milestone in the game.

This jackpot is the second-highest Mega Millions jackpot ever.

The only jackpot larger was the $1.53 billion won in South Carolina in 2018.

The estimated $1.35 billion jackpot would be distributed as an annuity paid  over 29 years.

Despite the game's long odds, players continue to purchase tickets as the prize grows.
