Friday's Mega Millions jackpot soars to $1 billion

The $1.6 billion estimated jackpot would be the largest prize in USA history. The next drawing, which is scheduled for Tuesday (10/23) at 11pm, will have an estimated jackpot of $1.6 billion.

In the Powerball, the victor can also opt for a cash prize of more than $354 million. This is the largest jackpot in US history, and will have a $905 million cash option. United Kingdom players can win a separate prize by betting on the numbers.

The Mega Millions lottery jackpot has reached a record-breaking £1.26 billion ($1.6bn) after there was no victor of the £765 million ($1bn) prize.

Based on sales projections, 75 percent of the 302 million possible combinations will be chosen for Tuesday's drawing, up from 59.1 percent in Friday's, said Carole Gentry, spokeswoman for Maryland Lottery and Gaming.

While the epic prize is up for grabs in the US, Lottoland UK customers can bet on the outcome of the MegaMillions lottery and potentially win a separate jackpot.
