HOUSTON - Although no one hit the big Mega Millions jackpot Friday, two Houston-area tickets worth millions were sold.
A $1 million ticket was sold at a Valero Corner Store in the 4100 block of Bellaire Blvd. A $2 million ticket was sold at a Cove County Store in the 4600 block of S FM 565 Road in Cove, Texas.
The winning numbers in Friday’s drawing were: 15, 23, 53, 65, 70 and Mega Ball 7.
Since there were no winners, the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion. The estimated jackpot for the drawing would tie the largest lottery prize in U.S. history.
The next drawing will be Tuesday.
