No one had the winning numbers for Friday’s (Oct. 19th) Mega Millions Drawing.

The winning numbers are 15 23 53 65 70 and Mega Ball 7.

The Mega Millions numbers that could win an estimated $1 billion jackpot were announced last night.

Since there was no jackpot winner, the jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday (Oct. 23) is up to a new world record of $1.6 billion.

The jackpot is the second-largest lottery prize in U.S. lottery history.

The odds of winning are a miserable one in 302.5 million.

The prize has grown so large because no one has hit the jackpot since July 24, when a group in California won $543 million.

The $1 billion prize refers to the annuity option. Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night’s drawing would be $565 million.

Officials say that if there isn’t a winner, the prize for Tuesday night’s drawing would be $1.6 billion, tying the largest U.S. lottery prize.
