(CNN) — The Mega Millions jackpot rose to $790 million after no ticket matched all six winning numbers in Friday night’s drawing.

Friday’s winning numbers were 14, 40, 60, 64, 66, plus the golden Mega Ball 16, according to the lottery website.

The night’s $630 million prize was the equivalent of about $388 million in cash, the lottery said.

The next drawing is scheduled for Tuesday, when the prize money is estimated at $464.4 million.

“Only three lottery jackpots have been won, in any game, at a level higher than next Tuesday’s estimated prize pool of $790 million,” the lottery said in a press release.

Two of those were Mega Millions jackpots: $1.537 billion in South Carolina on October 23, 2018 and $1.05 million in Michigan on January 22, 2021.

A Powerball jackpot of $1,586,000 million is currently the world record jackpot, having been won on January 13, 2016.

Although no one drew all six numbers, there were four big winners on friday when the first five numbers were drawn. In the case of three of those tickets – sold in Delaware, New Jersey and New York – they had opted for the Megaplier, giving each one a prize of US $ 3 million. The fourth match-five ticket was sold in Virginia and was worth $1 million, according to the lottery.

Four Mega Millions jackpots were won this year in Tennessee, California, New York and Minnesota.
