Mega Millions Jackpot Rises To $400 Million

CHICAGO (March 15, 2014) The Mega Millions jackpot rose to an estimated $400 million Saturday after no one matched all six numbers in Friday night's drawing.

The numbers were 7-20-40-54-69, with a Mega Ball of 12.

Friday's $353 million prize would have been the fifth-largest jackpot in the multistate lottery game's history.

The next drawing is Tuesday.

The biggest lottery prize in the U.S. was a $656 million dollar Mega Millions jackpot in 2012.

Mega Millions changed its rules in October to help increase jackpots by lowering the odds of winning the top prize, which means the chances of winning the jackpot are now about 1 in 259 million.

It used to be about 1 in 176 million.
