The Mega Millions jackpot has climbed to a whopping $321 million after no one matched all six numbers during Friday night’s drawing. The numbers were 11, 29, 36, 58, and 67 with a Mega Ball of 15.
As previously reported by WebProNews, the last time the Mega Millions jackpot was won was on August 22 when a California player matched all six numbers to take home the $180 million.
According to Megamillions.com, this marks only the 10th time in Mega Millions’ 12-year history that the jackpot will surpass the $300 million mark.
While no one managed to win the jackpot, there were five Match 5 winning tickets sold for the Halloween drawing; one in New York and two each in California and New Jersey. The Match 5 is won when a person matches five numbers but not the Mega Ball. The prize for matching five numbers is $1 million.

The next drawing will take place on Tuesday, November 4. If someone is lucky enough to match all six numbers, they will have the opportunity to take the cash option of $194 million. If they choose not to take the cash option, they will have the choice to take the annuity option.
Mega Millions tickets are sold in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U. S. Virgin Islands.
Tickets cost $1 each, and drawings take place on Tuesday and Friday nights
