(AP) - Friday the 13th may prove extremely lucky for one or more players in this week's Mega Millions drawing, or the estimated jackpot of $425 million could keep swelling.
Going into Friday, it had rolled over 20 times without a winner. A single winner from Friday night's drawing could have a cash option of $228 million before taxes. The numbers drawn are: 19-24-26-27-70, Mega Ball: 12.
The jackpot is the second-largest Mega Millions jackpot ever, trailing a $656 million jackpot in March 2012, and it is the fifth-largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history.
If there is no winning ticket, the jackpot will increase to $550 million.
