No jackpot-winning ticket was sold in Tuesday night's Mega Millions drawing worth an estimated $454 million, a lottery official said.
Virginia Lottery spokesman John Hagerty told The Associated Press that because no one won the jackpot, it will increase to an estimated $508 million for the next drawing on Friday.
The winning numbers in Tuesday's drawing were: 29, 46, 53, 64, 73, and 10.
With slightly better odds than the Powerball game, it's rare that nearly four months passes without someone winning a Mega Millions jackpot. Tuesday marks the 34th time the jackpot has rolled over without a winner. The previous record was 22 rolls.
"This is our longest roll ever, by far," said Paula Otto, executive director of the Virginia Lottery and lead director for Mega Millions, which is managed by a consortium of lottery organizations.
Otto said there are several factors for the lack of a winner, and it includes fewer players. The highest jackpot drawn in the country was a $1.6 billion Powerball jackpot won in January by players in three states.
"It takes much bigger jackpots to get players excited," she said. "It looks like the tipping point might be right about now."
The odds of picking the correct numbers on five white balls and one yellow ball in the Mega Millions game are one in 259 million. For Powerball, it's one in roughly 292 million. Revamps to the country's two big lottery games in recent years decreased the odds of picking all the numbers needed for the top prize, though officials point out it's increased the number of winners who score smaller prizes that range from $1 million to $5 million, depending on the game.
Mega Millions tickets are sold in 43 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
