Last Tuesdays draw was the 11th since anyone purchased a winning ticket and matched all six numbers meaning this Friday you could be playing for a $140 Mega Millions jackpot.

On Tuesday seven winning tickets were sold matching five Mega Millions numbers and each one of those picked up $250,000 but no-one has won the full jackpot since September 18th when one lucky player from New York picked up $54 million. This Friday’s $140 jackpot (just over £88 million) is a huge amount but does not come close to some of the record payouts from past draws which include:
