No Winner in Mega Millions Drawing; Jackpot Grows to $500 Million

March 28, 2012 Updated Mar 28, 2012 at 2:43 PM EDT

Lottery players will have another shot to win a gigantic jackpot this week.

No tickets matched all six numbers to hit the $363 million Mega Millions jackpot in Tuesday night's drawing.

That means the prize grows to an estimated $500 million heading into Friday's drawing.

The highest lottery jackpot on record in the U.S. was a $390 million Mega Millions prize that was hit on March 6, 2007. The current jackpot has been growing since January.
