While many consider Friday the 13th unlucky, it has been rewarding for Mega Millions® players over the years, with six previous jackpots winning on such a day. There’s a chance for another this Friday, and it’s a big one! After no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night – the white balls 7, 13, 14, 15, and 18, plus the gold Mega Ball 9 – a gigantic prize of $1.35 billion ($707.9 million cash) is estimated for Friday, January 13. If won at that amount, it would be the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history!

The only Mega Millions jackpot larger than Friday’s estimated prize is the game record of $1.537 billion, won in South Carolina on October 23, 2018.

Across the country, 215 tickets matched four white balls plus the Mega Ball to win the game’s third-tier prize. Forty-one of those tickets are worth $30,000 each because they also included the optional Megaplier. The other 174 third-tier winning tickets are worth $10,000 each.
