Lottery authorities reported that there was no winner of the Mega Millions jackpot on Tuesday's drawing.
As a result, the amount of the reward has increased to over one billion dollars.
The numbers 25-29-33-41-44 were drawn as the winning Mega Millions numbers on January 3, 2023.
The Mega Ball number was 18, and the Megaplier was set at 4.
Because no ticket matched all six numbers, the jackpot has increased to a whopping $940 million.
This makes it the fourth highest payout in the history of Mega Millions and the sixth greatest award in the annals of the United States lottery.
The drawing for the next prize in Mega Millions will take place on Friday evening, and it will give a cash option of at least $483.5 million.
Players of Mega Millions have the chance to win one million dollars if they match all five numbers but not the Mega Ball.
In all, three of these tickets were purchased in the states of Maryland, Texas, and Virginia.
