Officials said the estimated annualized jackpot could be worth $1.35 billion, while the potential lump-sum cash payout is $724.6 million.

"Congratulations to the Maine State Lottery, which has just won its first Mega Millions jackpot," said Pat McDonald, who runs the Ohio lottery and serves as the principal director of the Mega Millions Consortium.

“This is the fourth billion dollar jackpot in Mega Millions history.”

Friday's jackpot was the second-biggest Mega Millions jackpot, surpassed only by the lottery record $1.537 million won in South Carolina in 2018, the lottery said.

The jackpot size has increased over the past three months or so, eventually surpassing the remarkable $1 billion.


Prior to this month's victory, six top prizes were won on Friday the 13th in the US, according to Mega Millions.

Other big winners from Friday's drawing include 14 tickets that won prizes of $1 million, according to Mega Millions.

Four tickets matching all five white balls were sold in New York, two each in California, and one each in Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Texas.

Friday's jackpot comes just three months after a $502 million jackpot on October 14, when there were two winning tickets from California and Florida.

The next drawing for an estimated $20 million jackpot is scheduled for Tuesday night, the lottery said.

Mega Millions is played in 45 states, along with the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands.
