The Associated Press is reporting that no winning lottery ticket was sold in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing.

Tuesday's drawing had already been the highest Mega Millions prize pot ever recorded, with what would have a $667 million payout. The numbers were 3, 45, 49, 61, 69 and Mega Ball 9. The estimated cash value, if you're lucky enough to match all six numbers, is $380 million.

The next drawing is Friday, Oct. 19 with an estimated worth of $868 million. The cash option, which is favored by almost all winners, is $380 million.

Roland Reyes claimed the prize on behalf of his group, saying they made a decision to play on a whim when they saw how large the jackpot had become.

Lottery tickets are sold at $2 each in kiosks, supermarkets and gas stations in 44 USA states, the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands.

The last Powerball jackpot, which totaled $245.6 million, was won August 11 by a man in Staten Island, New York.

The largest Powerball jackpot was $1.586 billion, which was shared by winners in California, Florida and Tennessee in January 2016.

Now, there's more than a billion dollars up for grabs between the Mega Millions and the Power Ball drawing.

There was no victor for Tuesday night's Mega Millions. The store received $1 million from Mega Millions for making the sale.
