This week's Mega Millions jackpot, which is now estimated at $868 million, could soar higher by the time of the drawing.

The $667 million jackpot refers to the annuity option, paid out over 29 years.

The immediate cash value of the Mega Millions prize, which winners can opt to take, is US$494.5 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot has been growing since July, when a group of California office workers won $543 million.

Mega Millions just keeps getting bigger and better.

The result is a staggering $900 million jackpot for Friday night's drawing.

The incredible jackpot comes after no ticket matched all six numbers drawn Tuesday night - the white balls 3, 45, 49, 61 and 69, plus the gold Mega Ball 9. That ticket is worth $5 million.

The Powerball jackpot was last won in August 2018.

Mega Millions is available in 44 states, plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The lottery prize was the country's third highest on record, trailing two Powerball jackpots, including a $1.586 billion payout in 2016.

"It's so exciting for our players, and all of us, to see the Mega Millions jackpot getting so close to an all-time record level", Gordon Medenica, the lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium, stated in a news release on Saturday.

The winning ticket was sold in Lugoff in Kershaw County at The Wildwood Market on Wildwood Lane, according to the statement.
