Mega Millions Jackpot Climbs to $309 Million

Posted: Updated:

The Mega Millions jackpot is now at $309 million - and ranks as the ninth highest jackpot in history!

No ticket matched all six numbers in Friday night's drawing. The jackpot has been rolling since it was last won in Tennessee on January 3. The cash option is $169 million!

Mega Millions tickets are sold in 43 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Drawings are held on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Tickets are available at Gold Ranch RV Resort and Casino's Lottery Building, and Hallelujah Junctions, located just across the California border.

The drawing will be held at 8pm PST.

Just last month, one person won the $425 million Powerball jackpot - which was the sixth largest jackpot in U.S. history and the fourth largest Powerball jackpot.  (AP)
