CLEVELAND (WJW) – Could Friday the 13th be your lucky day? Friday’s Mega Millions jackpot stands at the second-largest prize in the game’s history.
It’s been nearly three months since a Mega Millions ticket matched all six numbers to claim the game’s top prize, allowing the jackpot to grow to a record-setting $1.35 billion with a $707.9 million cash option.
According to Mega Millions, Michigan claims four of those jackpots won on Friday the 13th – June 2008, May 2011, June 2014 and October 2017. The other Friday the 13th jackpot was in New York in March 2009.
The largest Mega Millions jackpot ever hit $1.537 billion when a ticket holder in South Carolina won in Oct. 2018.
The largest jackpot in the U.S. to date was a $2.04 billion Powerball won by a single ticket in California in November.
The next drawing is Friday at 11 p.m. You can see the winning numbers here.
