Lottery jackpots continue to climb after no one matched all six numbers with the Mega Ball on Friday night. The $119 million jackpot on Friday had risen after no one won in Tuesday night’s drawing.
The Powerball jackpot on Friday night was at $245 million, and with no winners there, either, has now reached $317 million for Saturday’s drawing.
The winning combination of numbers pulled on Friday (and were unmatched in their entirety) were: 09-22-28-48-54, Mega Ball: 8. Three tickets did match five of the numbers, but not the Mega Ball; two California ticket-holders and one Maryland winner each walked away with $250,000.
The Mega Millions drawing next Tuesday is now at $130 million.
