Mega Millions jackpot grows to $445 million for Friday night's drawing
The advice from experts for choosing the numbers to play to increase your chance of winning.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The massive Mega Millions jackpot is growing again.
Lottery officials raised Friday's jackpot to an estimated $445 million with a cash option amount of $277.6 million.
No one won the jackpot in Tuesday night's drawing for $361 million, so the jackpot climbs for Friday night's drawing.
The numbers drawn Tuesday were 1, 42, 64, 47, 70. The Mega Ball: 22.
If there is a winner, he or she could choose an annuity to receive 30 payments over 29 years or take a lump sum.
Experts suggest that players use the full range of numbers available and not limit their chances by playing just numbers such as birthdays, since months have no more than 31 days and Powerball numbers go up to 69.
