(AP) — The final Mega Millions drawing of 2022 has taken place, but it wasn’t yet clear Friday night whether the estimated $685 million jackpot will roll over to another drawing.
The numbers drawn Friday were: 1, 3, 6, 44, 51 and Mega Ball 7.
Jackpot officials were expected to announce sometime Saturday morning whether there was a winner.
The jackpot has grown so large thanks to long odds of one in 302.6 million that have resulted in 22 straight drawings without a big winner.
The estimated $685 million prize is for a winner who chooses to be paid through an annuity, with annual checks over 29 years. Nearly all winners opt for cash instead, which would result in a smaller amount.
The jackpot is the largest since a $2.04 billion Powerball prize was won Nov. 8 in California. A winner hasn’t been announced for that record-setting payout.
Mega Millions is played in 45 states as well as Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
