COLORADO SPRINGS – The dream of hitting the big jackpot is still alive after no one correctly picked all six numbers in Friday night’s Mega Millions draw, setting up a record-breaking jackpot of $1.6 billion on Tuesday.

The numbers were 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.

Tuesday’s total would eclipse the record U.S. lottery prize of $1.58 billion, given away in a Powerball jackpot drawing in 2016.

“Mega Millions has already entered historic territory, but it’s truly astounding to think that now the jackpot has reached an all-time world record,” said Gordon Medenica, Lead Director of the Mega Millions Group and Director of Maryland Lottery and Gaming. “It’s hard to overstate how exciting this is — but now it’s really getting fun.”

While there was no jackpot winner on Friday, lottery officials said there were 15 ‘second-tier’ winning tickets of at least $1 million.
