No Mega Millions winner, so jackpot up to $325 million
There were nearly half-million winning tickets in New York alone following the much-anticipated Mega Millions drawing Tuesday night.
But no one won the jackpot in the 12-state lottery, a pool that was worth an estimated $252 million, officials said.
Officials now estimate the Mega Millions jackpot will be worth $325 million when the lottery is drawn Friday at 11 p.m. The largest jackpot in U.S. history was the $390-million Mega drawing on March 6, 2007, officials said.
Mega Millions has now gone 14 consecutive draws without a jackpot winner. The last winner was drawn on July 7.
It's exciting, until you realize the odds... don't get your hopes up.
