The Mega Millions jackpot will rollover on Tuesday (May 24) after zero players matched all six numbers during the $131 million drawing on Friday (May 20) night.

The jackpot will now increase to $143 million ($83.6 million cash value) for Tuesday night's drawing.

Results from Friday's Mega Millions game are listed below:

NUMBERS: 33-40-59-60-69

GOLD BALL: 22

MEGAPLIER: 3x

The Mega Millions and Powerball games offered a combined jackpot of more than $1.7 billion last year.

Mega Millions' jackpot reached $1.05 billion, with a cash option of $776.6 million on Friday, January 22, 2021, before a player in Michigan matched all six numbers. The jackpot was the second largest cash value ticket in lottery history.

Powerball's jackpot reached $731.1 million, with a cash option worth $546.8 million on Wednesday, January 20 2021, before a player in Maryland matched all six numbers. The jackpot was the third largest cash value for a single ticket in lottery history and the third largest in Powerball history.

Both jackpots increase during each following game until there's a winning ticket matching all six numbers drawn, which includes the additional Mega Millions "gold ball" or Powerball in each respective game.

The Mega Millions jackpot has exceeded the billion mark twice in its existence. In October 2018, a ticket was sold in South Carolina winning $1.537 billion ($878 million cash value), which is the world's largest jackpot for a single ticket and the largest cash value for a single ticket.

The Powerball jackpot has exceeded the half a billion mark 11 times during its existence.
