Mega Millions jackpot reaches nearly $1 billion

By  | 

Friday could be a huge payday for some lucky lottery player.

Friday's Mega Millions jackpot has risen to an estimated $970 million. No ticket matched all six numbers in the Tuesday Mega Millions drawing.

"Some place in Arizona where I don't have to deal with snow," lottery player Dave Roeder said when asked about the most extravagant thing he would buy. "[My] wife and I have already talked about that one."

The ticket sales cut off for the next Mega Millions drawing is 10:44 p.m. Friday.
