Mega Millions jackpot jumps to $418 million

Tuesday night’s drawing for the $361 million Mega Millions jackpot failed to produce a winner, so the jackpot is even more lucrative now: It’s an estimated $418 million, according to Mega Millions officials.

The drawing for that jaw-dropping jackpot will take place Friday night.

The numbers drawn Tuesday were 1, 42, 64, 47, 70. The Mega Ball: 22.

Lottery players across the country could win big if they have the winning numbers for both the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots, the latter of which will be drawn Wednesday.

The Powerball jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing is expected to be $440 million with a one-time cash payout of $278.3 million.
