Mega Millions jackpot grows to fifth-largest after no winner in Friday drawing

The $493 million top prize in Tuesday's drawing has a cashout option of $296 million.

Lottery players will be vying for the fifth-largest Mega Millions prize ever in Tuesday’s drawing.

The Mega Millions drawing prize is up to $493 million after no one won Friday night’s drawing. Those winning numbers were 1, 14, 30, 44, 62 and 1.

Tickets can be bought until 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. The cashout option for that amount would be $296 million.

The lottery awarded the fourth-largest jackpot in its 16-year history in March, when a New Jersey man won $533 million.

A secret Florida winner also won $451 million in January.

Saturday’s Powerball drawing was  for a mere $130 million.

CORRECTION: Tuesday's drawing prize is the fifth-largest and the $533 million jackpot in March was the fourth-largest. An earlier version of this story had incorrect rankings for the prizes.
