The Mega Millions lottery has a record jackpot for the Friday drawing.

The Mega Millions Jackpot reached $508 million, after the Tuesday drawing did not produce a winner. This is the 7th largest jackpot in the US history of the lottery.

In January the Powerball had the highest jackpot of all time with $1,586 billion. The next Mega Millions drawing is on Friday July 8 at 11pm ET. In case that there will be no winner, this Mega Millions Jackpot will quickly rise into the top 3 largest lottery jackpots.

This new record Mega Millions jackpot has been rolling since it was last won at $157 million by Michael Burkett in Washington on March 8. The only other jackpot awarded this year was a $169 million prize won in New York on January 8. That winner, Nancy Viola, was just announced last week by the New York Lottery. 

Mega Millions tickets sell for $1. Players may pick 6 numbers from two separate pools of numbers. 5 different numbers from 1 to 75 and one number from 1 to 15. Players can also just select Easy Pick. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing. Keep in mind that they Mega Millions lottery odds are totally against you with 1 in 258,900,000.
