Lottery players will have a chance at winning an estimated $868 million jackpot in Friday night's Mega Millions drawing, which would be the second-largest prize in USA history.

Officials say no tickets matched all six numbers to claim the Mega Millions prize Tuesday night.

The numbers for Tuesday were 3-45-49-61-69 and a Mega Ball of 9.

The victor will shatter the previous record for highest Mega Millions jackpot awarded: a $656 million payday in March 2012.

The record lottery jackpot was a $1.6 billion Powerball prize won in January 2016.

Of course, you could also enter the Powerball drawing on Wednesday.

If someone were to win both lotteries the cash option would total $571,000,000. The other eight are million-dollar tickets - two were sold in Pennsylvania and one each in California, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, New York and Kentucky.

The jackpot had swelled because nobody has won since July 24. Combined, both games value at over $1.2 billion.

"As ticket sales increase across the country, more and more combinations of numbers are covered, increasing the chances that the jackpot will hit", Teja said.

The drawing for $667-million was the fourth largest in US history.

The prize? $900 million, after no one won on Tuesday night.

Mega Millions and Powerball tickets are $2 each, and Megabucks Doubler tickets are $1 each.
