Meanwhile, the jackpot for the Mega Millions lottery has climbed to an estimated $418 million, the fourth-largest in the game's history, after no tickets matched all six numbers during Tuesday's grand prize drawing, lottery officials said.
No one has won the Mega Millions jackpot since Oct. 13 when $42 million was shared by winners in Michigan and Rhode Island, the game said on its website.
The estimated $418 million prize, with a cash value of $278 million, will be up for grabs when the next Mega Millions drawing is held on Friday at 11 p.m. ET. The odds of hitting the Mega Millions jackpot are 303 million to 1, the game said.
