Players in the lottery are getting more and more thrilled as the prizes continue to increase. The Mega Millions jackpot award of $1.1 billion, which is the eighth-largest prize in the history of the lottery, was still unclaimed after the drawing that took place on Friday.

When is the next drawing?

The next drawing is scheduled for Tuesday, March 26 at 10 p.m. North Dakota time, providing an opportunity for individuals desiring to win the $1.1 billion jackpot, which translates to a cash prize of $525.8 million. What would you do with that much money? I can't even imagine, but it would be fun to see!

There were a few winners on Friday!

The winning numbers from Friday's most recent drawing were 3, 8, 31, 35, and 44. The Mega Ball, with a 3x Megaplier, was 16. There were Match 5 winners in Texas, Nebraska, Illinois, Florida, and California that took home $1 million, and one Match 5 + Megaplier winner in Virginia who took home $3 million, even though no one claimed the big prize.
