PHILADELPHIA (CBS/CNN) – The Mega Millions jackpot has rolled over again! Friday’s jackpot is now up to $970 million after no one won Tuesday night. This is now the game’s second-largest jackpot in history.
The winning numbers from Tuesday are: 10-19-26-28-50 and the Mega Ball 16.READ MORE: 14-Year-Old Boy Injured In North Philadelphia Shooting, Police Say
Eleven tickets still matched five white balls to win at least $1 million. Two tickets in New Jersey and one ticket in Pennsylvania won the million-dollar prize.
An estimated $970 million is now up for grabs for those who’d like their prize in an annual payment or $716.3 million for a lump-sum option.
If the top prize is won Friday, it would be the United States’ third-largest lottery jackpot ever, behind a $1.586 billion Powerball prize in January 2016 and the current Mega Millions record of $1.537 billion from October 2018.
This is the longest stretch without a Mega Millions jackpot winner, lottery officials say. The last jackpot win was $120 million on September 15 by a player in Wisconsin.

You can try your luck again Wednesday night with Powerball. That jackpot is worth $730 million or $546 million cash option.
If it is won, it would the fourth-largest Powerball jackpot in game history, and the sixth-largest in US lottery history, organizers say.
Like Mega Millions, Powerball is on its longest streak of drawings without a jackpot winner. The last jackpot was won in New York on Sept. 16.
