Mega Millions drawing on Friday, Oct. 19, 2018

A Mega Millions lottery ticket rested on the shop counter at the Street Corner Market on Wednesday in Cincinnati

The winning numbers are 15, 23, 53, 65 and 70, and the mega ball is 7.

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.

Lottery officials changed the odds in recent years to lessen the chance of winning a jackpot, which in turn increased the opportunity for top prizes to reach stratospheric levels.

Most winners opt for cash, which for Friday night's drawing would be $565 million. You'd be more likely to be struck by lightning or attacked by a shark.

"The excitement that's been generated by this historic Mega Millions jackpot has led to outstanding sales figures for the Texas Lottery during the last several days, which means more revenue for the state of Texas", said Gary Grief, executive director of the Texas Lottery.

The total amount has now swelled to an estimated $1.6 billion jackpot for Tuesday night's draw, which costs $2 to play. The annuity option guarantees more money, but it's paid over 29 years and also would result in a hefty tax bill.

"We tell them how to play it", she said.
