Mega Millions next drawing day? No winner last night; jackpot grows
No purchased ticket matched all five numbers and the Mega Ball drawn Tuesday night to claim the Mega Millions jackpot.
The jackpot now rolls over to close to $1 billion for the next drawing.
The jackpot has continued to swell since the April 18 drawing when a ticket sold in New York won the $20 million prize. The mammoth jackpot comes days after a single ticket sold in California won the Powerball $1.08 billion prize.

Players can pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers: five different numbers from the white balls numbered 1-70 and one number from the gold balls numbered 1-25.
- Five white balls + one gold ball = Jackpot.
- Five white balls = $1 million.
- Four white balls + one gold ball = $10,000.
- Four white balls = $500.
- Three white balls + one gold ball = $200.
- Three white balls = $10.
- Two white balls + one gold ball= $10.
- One white ball + one gold ball = $4.
- One gold ball = $2.

What is the Megaplier?
Most states offer the Megaplier feature, which increases nonjackpot prizes from two, three, four and five times.
It costs an additional $1 per play.
Before each regular Mega Millions drawing, the Megaplier is drawn. From a pool of 15 balls, five are marked with "2X," three with "4X" and one with "5X."
