No Mega Millions lottery winner.
That was a message from lottery officials, who said the Mega Millions jackpot would rise to $1.02 billion at its next drawing.
No one matched all six numbers during its Tuesday night drawing.
The new estimated jackpot will be the fourth-largest in lottery history.
It has now been 29 consecutive drawings without a first-prize winner. Tuesday’s numbers were 07-29-60-63-66. The Mega Ball was 15.
The odds of winning a Mega Millions drawing are 1 in 302.5 million. It’s played in 45 states including Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The $1.02 billion prize would be for the winner who chooses to have the total paid out over 30 years. Most winners choose the cash option, which means a smaller payout of $602.5 million.
The next drawing will be Friday at 11 p.m.
