The Mega Millions jackpot nearly sets a record at $1.35 billion. When is the next drawing?

The Mega Millions jackpot is approaching the biggest in history at $1.35 billion after no one had a winning ticket in the January 10 draw.

The jackpot record is held by a winner from South Carolina who scooped the $1.537 billion prize on October 23, 2018, lottery officials said.

Now players have a chance to win the second biggest jackpot in history on Friday, January 13. Drawings are saved Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. ET.

“The jackpot has rolled again, keeping everyone who follows Mega Millions hyped for another draw,” said Pat McDonald, Ohio Lottery Manager and Senior Manager of the Mega Millions Consortium.

There have been 25 draws without a winner since two players from California and Florida shared a $502 million jackpot on Oct. 14, lottery officials said.

Some may be superstitious to play on Friday the 13th, lottery officials said, but six previous jackpots have been won on this unlucky date.

Michigan players won four of those jackpots, including a jackpot shared by someone from Rhode Island. The other two winning Friday the 13th tickets were claimed in New York and Ohio.

Mega Millions costs $2 to play. To win the jackpot, a player must match all six numbers drawn.
