The winning numbers for Tuesday night's $454 million Mega Millions lottery were 29, 46, 53, 64, 73 and 10.
No winner emerged immediately after the draw and the Mega Millions site the payout for Friday's draw to $508 million, with the option to take a cash payout of $357 million.
The next draw will be July 8 at 11 p.m. EDT.
The jackpot swelled to $454 million on Tuesday, making it one of the 10 largest prizes in U.S. lottery history, lottery officials said. Mega Millions is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The odds of winning this jackpot are one in nearly 259 million.
"With strong sales around the country, the estimated jackpot for Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing has been raised," lottery officials said in a statement earlier on Tuesday.
The Mega Millions jackpot has jumped twice after last Friday night's drawing failed to produce a winning ticket worth $415 million. The jackpot has been growing since early March, when a Washington state man snagged $157 million with his winning ticket.
Each $1 ticket sold makes up the hefty prize, which the winner can chose to take as an immediate cash payout or an initial payment and then 29 annual payments.
Ticket sales typically increase as the prize grows, lottery officials said.
The current prize is the game's biggest since December 2013, when holders of two tickets sold in California and Georgia shared a $648 million jackpot. The largest Mega Millions jackpot, worth $656 million, was sold the prior year.
In January, three winning Powerball tickets were sold in Florida, Tennessee and California to claim a share of nearly $1.6 billion, the largest prize to have been won on a single lottery game anywhere in the world.
On social media on Tuesday, ticket holders fantasized about their plans if they won the prize, including plans to buy expensive clothing and even sports teams.
"If I win tonight's Mega Millions, I'm going to buy my own basketball league," comedian Spencer Hicks tweeted.
