The jackpot was the biggest in Mega Millions history and the second-largest in lottery history, behind only the $1.586 billion Powerball jackpot in January 2016, according to Maryland Lottery and Gaming.

Mega Millions tickets for Friday's drawing may be purchased online at MichiganLottery.com and at the Lottery's 11,000 retailers around the state until 10:45 p.m.
