  • Mega Millions lottery tickets rest on a counter at a Pilot travel center near Burlington N.C. A lucky player could soon overcome remarkably bad odds to win the ninth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. Number

The US Mega Millions jackpot grew to US$1.6 billion, a world record for a lottery, after Friday's drawing produced no victor of the grand prize, officials said.

The winning numbers for tonight were 15 - 23 - 53 - 65 - 70 and a Mega Ball of 7, with a Megaplier of 2x.

One person who bought a Mega Millions ticket at a store in Oak Forest for Friday's jackpot is now $1 million richer. By 3 p.m. Friday, the state had seen more than $3 million in ticket sales for Mega Millions this week.

The $1 billion is the highest jackpot in Mega Millions history. Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night's drawing would be $565 million.

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.

But if you are itching to play, you could win even more on Tuesday.
