The base prize for matching the five white numbers drawn is $1 million.

The prize for Friday's Mega Millions contest had soared to $1 billion, prompting long lines at gas stations and 7-11s across the country, the federal capital Washington and the US Virgin Islands where the lottery is held.

The $2 million victor has not yet claimed their prize. Mega Millions is now offering a potential prize of $1.6 billion.

No one won the latest Mega Millions drawing, meaning the jackpot climbs to a staggering $1.6 billion.

U.S. lottery jackpot breaks record at 1.6bn dollars
Regardless of whether anyone buys a winning ticket for this drawing, it will be the largest in Mega Millions history . Powerball holds its drawing Saturday night, with a potential prize of $470 million.

The numbers drawn Saturday were 62-16-54-57-69 and the Powerball was 23. That jackpot was won in January 2016.

Friday morning, the jackpot rose to $1 billion, with an estimated cash payout of more than $565 million.

Powerball has climbed since there was a victor in NY on August 11. The odds of winning the jackpot are about one in 302 million but, with so many tickets being purchased, the likelihood of rollover becomes increasingly slim.

Each Powerball ticket is $2.
