NEW YORK, NY – Last night’s (27th March) Mega Millions draw once again so no-one win the jackpot, meaning that Friday’s estimated jackpot has risen over $100million to $476 million.

The numbers draw on Tuesday night were 9, 19, 34, 44 and 51. The Mega Ball was 24. Mega Millions officials have confirmed that there was no winner of the $356m jackpot for that draw.

If there is one lucky winner of the $476m prize on Friday night, they will become by far the biggest winner in Mega Millions history, with the current biggest jackpot ever won coming in at $390 million. This staggering amount of money was won in March 2007, almost exactly five years ago.

Although nobody won the big prize, around 2.9 million tickets were winners. The chances of winning any prize in a Mega Millions draw are around 40 to 1.

With bigger jackpots the time running up to the draw become an almost frenzied ticket buying spree as people look to win a truly life altering sum of money. $476 million is not just life altering for a single person, it will change the lives of all their family and friends.

The next draw takes place at 11 p.m. ET on Friday 30th March and will be live on TV across the country.
