This is the third jackpot this year of more than $400 million.

The Mega Millions jackpot continues to grow.

The lottery game's website cites the largest Mega Millions jackpot in history as $656 million dollars, back in 2012. Forty-seven tickets won the $10,000 prize, five of those winning $20,000 each because they included the optional Megaplier.

The winning numbers for Friday night's drawing were 44, 14, 30, 62, 1 and Mega Ball 1.

The last jackpot was won on May 4 in OH and the victor collected $142 million.

The next drawing will take place Tuesday night. It will also be the largest total since a single ticket paid out $533 million to a person from New Jersey this March.

Both jackpots start at $40 million and roll until the jackpot is won.

The odds of matching all five numbers and the Mega number are 1 in more than 300 million, but that's not stopping people from trying their luck. But July seems to be a good month to play.
