The Mega Millions lottery has rolled over for the 21st time after no one had the winning numbers to claim the $425 million prize Friday, officials say.
The jackpot for the next drawing on Tuesday will be an estimated $550 million.
Friday's lottery numbers were 19, 24, 26, 27, 70 and a Mega Ball of 12, lottery officials said.
The odds of winning Tuesday's jackpot, which would be the second-highest in the history of the Mega Millions lottery, are about 1 in 259 million, lottery officials said.
Oddsmakers say lottery players have a better chance of something tragic happening to them than of winning the multi-million dollar prize. Statisticians at Tulane University say players are 1,000 times more likely to die from being hit by an asteroid. The Harvard School of Public Health says the chances of dying from a lightning strike are 1 in 3 million.
