The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has climbed to $415 million for Friday’s drawing, the third-largest for the game and the nation’s biggest lottery jackpot since May.
The game’s biggest prize has been rolling over since March 8, when a person in Washington, D.C., won.
Though the jackpot may not be as jaw-dropping as the $1.6-billion Powerball jackpot in January, it’s the biggest Mega Millions jackpot so far this year, and is worth $286 million if paid out in a single lump sum.
The last time any U.S. lottery game had a bigger payout was in May, when Powerball climbed to $429.6 million.
